The Supreme Court was the theatre in which the best stories of life in the penal colony of NSW were told. The most compelling and dramatic of these, between 1824 and 1836, are collected and retold in this book. Professor Kercher deals in particular with the law’s outsiders, including those who had limited legal capacity: the wives, the convicts, and the Aborigines.
