I have recently read "The Secret River " by Kate Grenville which was a really good read and very illuminating about the life a convict and his family both before and after he was convicted.
Fortunatly for me the story mirrored my own convict ancestor. I believe she has also written a companion book about how she went about the research which my "Genelogical friends" seemed to all have loved. I haven't read any of William Stuart Long works so I will have to look them up.
