    From January , when the First Fleet of convicts arrived at Botany Bay, to the end of convict transportation 80 years later, over , convicts were transported to Australia. Although convicts were transported to the colonies of New South Wales, Tasmania and Western Australia, many convicts ended up in other states or colonies, having been taken there by their assigned masters, or moving. In his book, “Twice the Work of Free Labor: The Political Economy of Convict Labor in the New South,” historian Alex Lichtenstein noted that while some northern states used convict leasing, only in the South was complete control of prisoners turned over to the contractors, and only in the South did the places where convict laborers worked become known as “penitentiaries.”.

    Convict clothing. Until , the government haned out civilian clothes or ‘slops’ to convicts – there was no need for a uniform because nearly everyone in the colony was a convict. However, as more free settlers moved to Australia, and convicts finished their sentences, it was necessary to be able to easily distinguish the convicts. Pip, afraid the convict may not leave enough food to satisfy the young man he thinks he just met on the marshes, shyly suggests that the convict shouldn't eat it all. The convict dismisses him. Then, when Pip insists he thought the young man looked hungry, the convict stops eating in surprise and asks Pip to describe the young man he saw further. Pip tries to describe that man's leg-iron.

    The book begins in London, where Friday, Harriet, Sarah and Rachel are each caught and convicted of crimes ranging from prosititution, stealing some material, stealing jewellery, and being destitute. Although they are from vastly different backgrounds, one they meet in Newgate Gaol - truly lovely place - they forge an inseparable bond which sees them through the voyage to New South Wales/5(66). The Prisoner's Wife What a good book this is! The book is based on a story a WWII prisoner told to the author and fleshed out with much research. The story features a farm girl and the prisoner who was sent to her family farm by the Nazis to help with the farm. I have read quite a few WWII books in the past year and this one not only was so.
