This serious tale is about prisoners who had once passed on through those gates of Boggo Road Gaol. Most were boys who fought the system of intimidation and of poverty, while only a few of them married, had children, or lived for very long in the world that taught them to be out and out criminals. One thing is certain, each profile, is quite a lot different to the next one, while no man can say that they had returned out of a Gaol a better persona than that youth who entered those gates of Brisbane's Old Boggo Road Gaol. This is volume 1.
