  • "Bound with an Iron Chain: The Untold Story of How the British Transported 50,000 Convicts to Colonial America" - Anthony Vaver - This book is an interesting read as it covers experiences of convicts transported to the Americas prior to the American Revolutionary War. It is interesting to compare the experiences of those Convicts compared with those transported to the NSW Colony afterwards.
