  • This is a worthy example of the new scholarship on the early colonial history of New South Wales. It draws on new research on the 1798 Rebellion in Ireland and Father James Dixons role (or lack of it), as well as his career as the first Prefect Apostolic of New Holland. It depicts the colourful rebels in Dixons family, his dramatic rescue by a Protestant clergyman from an angry mob in Wales, his transportation to Botany Bay and many other colourful incidents in his life.
