Morgan's Run/McCullough, Co/Paper/0099280981/S011-C
For the first time since her hugely popular bestseller The Thorn Birds captivated millions of readers, Colleen McCullough returns to Australia with a breathtaking new historical saga.
It was one of the greatest human experiments ever undertaken: to populate an unknown land with the criminal, the unloved and the unwanted of English society. "The First Fleet" was sent to a place no European but the legendary Captain Cook had ever seen.
Left to live or die on the hostile Australian continent, these convicts - and their equally isolated guards - occupy the centre of Colleen McCullough's compelling new epic. Richard Morgan - convicted felon and educated, intelligent, resourceful man - finds the will to survive, experience the joys of love, and finally make an indelible mark upon the new frontier. A thoroughly researched historical saga, rich in romance, adventure and unforgettable characters, Morgan's Run has the makings of a modern classic.
