By the time Maurice O’Brien reaches New Zealand he is a mutineer and an escaped convict. Surviving in the so-called land of heathen savages and cannibals is as difficult and dangerous as New South Wales.
Making a home, learning a new language and starting a new life in far distant land are new challenges almost as difficult as the last life-changing upheaval. The one thing he is certain of; he is no longer an Irishman. He was to become a tough mariner, whaler and bar-room brawler.
It was that or die.
The third novel in a series called based on the true stories of many people from Ireland (and other british isles) who were convicted of crimes and transported to the continent now known as Australia to serve their sentence in the early 1800’s. It is a cruel punishment that leads many to desperate measures to survive.
Tom O’Connor is a historian and writer specialising in Maori history and topics.
