Long recognised for its fine old buildings, the cosmopolitan port city of Fremantle held special significance as the first landfall for early settlers to the Swan River Colony. Michal Bosworth takes the reader on a fascinating journey through nineteenth century Fremantle, a journey centred on the grim complex of buildings set up to house the prisoners.

Author Biography - Michal Bosworth

Michal Bosworth, joint winner of the 1991 WA Premier's Award (non-fiction) for Emma: A Translated Life, here indulges with engaging passion in two of her favourite fields of research - the place in history of heritage sites and buildings, and the social impact of the prison system. In a career spanning almost a quarter century, Michal has written prolifically, both for children and adults, on such diverse topics as food, clothing, shelter, technology, migration, transport, resources and communications. She is a contributor to the Australian Dictionary of Biography, and her articles on feminism, women writers and a host of other wide-ranging topics have appeared in numerous Australian journals.
