    We assume that all convicts were white few people know that indigenous people got caught up in the convict system. These men and women were taken prisoner during frontier wars in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, yet they were treated as criminals rather than prisoners of war, and exiled to penal colonies in New South Wales and Van Diemens Land. Their crimes ranged from sheep and cattle stealing, through to arson, mutiny and bushranging. They lived, laboured, were punished, and died alongside convicts transported from Britain and elsewhere. Hardly any returned home. Until now their stories have been overlooked by or erased from the grand narratives of British and Australian colonial history. This powerful book recovers them from history.
