Read full description of the books:



The convict women who built a continent..."A moving and fascinating story." -Adam Hochschild, author of "King Leopold's Ghost"

"The Tin Ticket" takes readers to the dawn of the nineteenth century and into the lives of three women arrested and sent into suffering and slavery in Australia and Tasmania-where they overcame their fates unlike any women in the world. It also tells the tale of Elizabeth Gurney Fry, a Quaker reformer who touched all their lives. Ultimately, this is a story of women who, by sheer force of will, became the heart and soul of a new nation.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Tin Ticket: The Heroic Journey of Australia's Convict Women read Online! Deborah Swiss is the author of The Tin Ticket: The Heroic Journey of Australia's Convict Women, and several other non-fiction books. Her latest project started with a chance meeting in a post office in Launceston, Tasmania in 2004. Tasmanian artist Christina Henri, whose work honors the female transports, happened to be in the same line and began to tell a story that led to six and a half years of research. The Tin Ticket explores the forgotten history of 25,000 women who were transported as “tamers and breeders” to Australian colonies in the early nineteenth century. It’s a story about the triumph of the human spirit told through the lives of three remarkable survivors. The book trailer features interviews with convict descendants: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpVP6w...
