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.

Deborah J. Swiss received her Ed.D. from Harvard University, and is the author of Women and the Work/ Family Dilemma, Women Breaking Through, and The Male Mind at Work. She lives in Lexington, Massachusetts.

  • Intriguing Title

    I actually purchased this for a friend as we were having a discussion on how Australia was founded... As I started my research I was surprised to discover that women were also sent to the Penal colonies there and so was she... excellent true story and a must read! We should not forget History as it often repeats itself. Ala FEMA camps and other items of interest in the news of late.
