Description
Colleen McCullough captivated millions with her beloved worldwide bestseller "The Thorn Birds." Now she takes readers to the birth of modern Australia with a breath-taking saga brimming with drama, history, and passion.
It was one of the greatest human experiments ever undertaken: to populate an unknown continent with the criminals of English society. For Richard Morgan, twelve months as a prisoner on the high seas would be just the beginning in a soul-trying test to survive in a hostile new land where, against all odds, he would find a new love and a new life. From the dank cells of England's prisons to the unforgiving frontier of the eighteenth-century outback, "Morgan's Run" is the epic tale of one man whose strength and character helped settle a country and define its future.
