Description - Many Years a Thief by David Hutchison

This is the story of how John Gavin, a 15-year-old boy - one of a group of juvenile convicts taking part in an attempted rehabilitation scheme - became the first European to be executed in the colony of Western Australia. David Hutchison's publications include articles, essays, poetry and short fiction, botanical illustrations, A Town Like No Other (about the Benedictine Community of New Norcia in Western Australia), and Fremantle Walks. 'This is an excellent novel. Perceptive, subtle and moving in its insights, the narrative moves to its inexorable conclusion with a surely controlled touch. By a long way the most compelling work based on Western Australian history that I have read.' - Professor Geoffrey Bolton
