McCullough, Colleen - Morgan's Run. Century, 2000, 1st.
It was one of the greatest human experiments ever undertaken to populate an unknown land with the criminal, the unloved and the unwanted of English society. Amid conditions of brutality that paralleled those of slavery, 'The First Fleet' was sent to a place no European but the legendary Captain Cook had ever seen. Left to live or die on the hostile Australian continent, these convicts - and their equally isolated guards - occupy the centro of McCullough's compelling new epic. Richard Morgan - convicted felon and educated, intelligent, resourceful man - finds the will to survive, experience the joys of love, and finally amke an indelible mark upon the new frontier. A thoroughly researched historical saga rich in romance, adventure and unforgettable characters, novel. (flap).
