It is early in the days of radio, and amateurs are using it more and more, and using it illegally. Enter Curlie Carson, who has the job of tracking down the miscreants. Sounds boring. You wouldn’t expect high speed car chases, kidnapping, double dealing, and maybe even murder.

For the Term of His Natural Life

For the Term of His Natural Life by Marcus Clarke

For the Term of His Natural Life by Marcus Clarke

For the Term of his Natural Life, written by Marcus Clarke. It is the best known novelization of life as a convict in early Australian history. Described as a “ripping yarn”, and at times relying on seemingly implausible coincidences, the story follows the fortunes of Rufus Dawes, a young man transported for a murder which he did not commit. The harsh and inhumane treatment meted out to the convicts, some of whom were transported for relatively minor crimes, is clearly conveyed. The conditions experienced by the convicts are graphically described. The novel was based on research by the author as well as a visit to the penal settlement of Port Arthur, Tasmania.
