520    "In eighteenth-century Britain, children as young as seven
       were tried in court as adults for crimes such as picking 
       pockets or stealing clothes. If convicted, they could be 
       sentenced to death or transported to the then-perilous and
       isolated colonies of Australia, where life was often as 
       difficult and dangerous as it was in Britain. But 
       transportation also meant opportunity for the lucky few. 
       Child Convicts is about the lives of these young prisoners
       who were forever changed because of transportations, 
       including the boy who became the first person hanged in 
       Australia and the girl whose likeness is now on the 
       nations' twenty-dollar note. This is their story: one of 
       nation-building and one of survival."--Jacket flap.
