Summary
  • "Most convicts arriving in New South Wales didn't expect to make their fortunes. Some went on to great success, but countless convicts and free migrants struggled with limited prospects, discrimination and misfortune. Many desperate people turned to The Benevolent Society, Australia's first charity founded in 1813, for assistance and sustenance." -- Publisher's website
  • Includes chapter: "From Stolen Generations to Link-up" discussing families' attempts to trace their Aboriginal heritage
