Rotters and Squatters- Jackie French
Part of the Fair Dinkum Histories Series.
Cannibal convicts, murdering squatters, sea captains who kidnapped their crew, poor farmers forced off their land - they had all come to the colonies of New South Wales and Van Dieman's Land to make a better lives for themselves. And now there were new colonies and farms spreading around Australia.
Join Jackie French and Peter Sheehan on a trip back through time to meet the rotters and squatters, the brave and the bold. It's history as you've never seen it!
