Tells the history of the men and women transported to what became one of Britain's most notorious convict colonies. Following the lives of dozens of convicts and their families, she uncovers stories of success, failure, and everything in between. While some suffered brutal conditions, most served their time and were freed, becoming ordinary and peaceful citizens. Yet, over the decades, a terrible stigma became associated with the convicts, and they and the whole colony went to extraordinary lengths to hide it. The majority of Tasmanians today have convict ancestry, whether they know it or not. While the public stigma of its convict past has given way to a contemporary fascination with colonial history, she debates whether the convict past lingers deep in the psyche of white Tasmania.

Sydney: Hachette Australia. 338 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, black & white photos, minor edgewear. When Harold Bell Lasseter disappeared in 1930 it could have been the end of a mystery. Thirty-three years earlier he had staggered out of the desert, almost dead, his pockets bulging with gold, claiming to have found a 15-kilometre gold reef. The mystery deepened when he and a surveyor returned to the isolated and mysterious ranges where the reef was supposed to be located. It became legendary when the largest inland expedition since Burke and Wills was launched. Vividly recreates the drama of the search - the characters, the fights, the soaring temperatures, the impossible terrain, the plane crash, the pistol-carrying dingo-skinner who appeared out of nowhere. And who was Lasseter? A one-time sailor, a bigamist, a man who claimed John Bradfield stole his plans for a single-span bridge to cross Sydney Harbour - was he also a very good liar? The gripping story of an outback legend. Is it just a myth, a fraud - or is there really a massive gold reef out there? ISBN: 9780733631603. Our Book No: 17055. $20 AUD.

Smithton, TAS: Jamala Press. 186 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, no flyleaf or title page as issued, black & white photos, front hinge slightly split (pages firm), minor edgewear corners & top spine. From the author's notes: The events that took place in the life of David Howie are historical fact, and appropriate record details are quoted in the bibliography. There is no evidence that Howie left any diaries, so some speculation and embellishment has been necessary to reconstruct his story where no records exist. An insight into David Howie's immediate family in Fifeshire where he was born, has been well researched. He became a household name in Australia in 1845. The research over many years in England, Scotland and Australia tells the story of a man who became a legend in his adopted country. The story is one of crime, passion, wrecked ships, attempted murder, sealers, pirates, Aborigines, graft and incredible bravery. He rescued the survivors of the Cataraqui wreck on King Island, Australia's worst sea tragedy on record. He was awarded the title of Straits Constable by the government of the day in order to police the islands of Bass Strait. ISBN: 1876913088. Our Book No: 29603. $35 AUD.

The ceremonial paintings of Yirawala (1894 - 1976) - ceremony leader, law carrier, medicine man and healer of the Gunwinggu tribe - are sought by museums all over the world. In 1971 he received an MBE for services to Aboriginal art. Contains, for the first time, colour plates and explanations of the entire ceremonial series of 139 paintings collected by Sandra (now in the Australian National Gallery, Canberra).
