Reviews

"This is a book for the convict era afficionado, who wants to know everything from the number of lashes dispensed each year, to the productivity of Port Arthur's coal mine. There are figures on agricultural yields and the workings of the hospital. It's a book that takes you through the time, using mostly comments and thoughts of its time. Too many authors overlay their own feelings of retrospective disgust to places like Port Arthur. Cameron holds off intelligently, preferring to let the words and descriptions of the era work for themselves." --Adam Courtenay, The Australian
