From the Edges of Empire: Convict Women from Beyond the British Isles. Edited by Lucy Frost and Colette McAlpine.
This book tells the remarkable stories of women transported to Australia from the British Isles. These stirring accounts remind us that the colonies were, from their beginning, populated by people from many cultures, and encourage us to envision the long reach of the British justice system during the heyday of Empire.
