Product Overview

In a harsh land, an orphan finds adventure - and the courage to survive.

At the tender age of eight, chimney sweep Tom Appleby is convicted of stealing and sentenced to deportation to Botany Bay. As he sails out with the First Fleet, Tom sadly realises that he will never set foot again on English ground.

Jackie French weaves Tom's story together with the history of the colony, and dispels the myths that have grown up about the First Fleet and those early years. She tells of a land that despite its natural abundance cannot offer what the colonists want - familiarity.
