Description - For the Term of His Natural Life by Marcus Clarke
First published in 1874, a powerful tale of an Australian penal settlement, which originally appeared in serial form in a Melbourne paper. It follows the story of Rufus Dawes, a young man transported for a murder which he did not commit.
