Botany Bay 1st ed. Signed by Nordhoff & Hall Charles Nordhoff & James Norman Hall 1941, Little, Brown & Co. Boston 1st edition The story follows Hugh Tallant, an American who was loyal to the British during the Revolutionary War. The War is over and Hugh seeks compensation from the British government for his loyalty, hoping to take part in colonizing the recently discovered Australian continent. The colonizing project is abandoned and so is Hugh. With his money depleted, he is forced into a life of highway robbery in order to return to North America. This leads him to Australia after all--as a convict.  The misery of the poor, and working class of London, and travails of the first penal settlers of Australia, is perfectly captured.  The novel was made into a Motion picture in 1953 by Paramount.
