‘Transported – A Pioneer’s Story’
Terry Spring brings George’s story to life; we get to know his character, his ambitions and his achievements… the opening up of rural NSW, the hardships that existed at the time and it is a change to read a story where the focus is on a NSW convict. ‘Transported’ is the type of story that makes the reader want to research their own family history. This is an interesting and enjoyable story that will appeal to many readers…Kathryn Duncan, Celapene Press
