With the authority of a renowned historian and the narrative grace of a brilliant novelist, Thomas Keneally offers an insider s perspective into the dramatic saga of the birth of a vibrant society in an unfamiliar land A Commonwealth of Thieves immerses us in the fledgling penal colony and conjures up colorful scenes of the joy and heartbreak, the thrills and hardships that characterized those first four improbable years.
