I found this book of history most informative, the lives of these early Australian convicts must have been terrible, the hardships that these three went through and survived tells how tough they were. Excellent read.

This is a well written non-fiction historical by Chris Pearce. The author does a wonderful job with providing details and really painting the locations and time frame for the reader. It wasn’t hard to really feel that you were part of the story as you read along. I found that I really further understood the time frame and the life of everyday person after reading this book. It was clear to me that the author had really done his research for this story and really took the time to write this book. I found that it was really helpful in providing a real idea of what life was like during the time frame that the main character lived. As I had never heard of the main character before I now have a very detailed explanation of his live and the type of live he lead. I would definitely recommend this story to my friends and family.
Awesome Historical BookReviewed in the United States on 15 June 2017
Through the Eyes of Thomas Pamphlett: Convict and Castaway by Chris Pearce tells an engaging story of history as well as crime and punishment in the not too distant past. Pamphlett began life in horrific conditions in Manchester, and worked as a brickmaker at a young age. The way in which Pearce describes Manchester is fascinating; he manages to convey exactly how dire the living conditions were and how the industrial impact on the city changed the living conditions as well as the economy. The story moves on and follows Pamphlett as a convict; a result of his stealing a horse. Harsh realities take over his life, and again, Pearce does a masterful job of expounding on the absolutely horrifying conditions and circumstances that Pamphlett has to endure. This is a thoroughly engaging look at history and one man's place in it; the addition of the many illustrations makes the story even more gripping. Highly recommend for an educational journey into the past.
