Description
Excerpt: Chapter 1. A BOLT FOR FREEDOM Most of the really important things in life?such as love and death?happen unexpectedly. I know that my escape from Dartmoor did. We had just left the quarries?eighteen of us, all dressed in that depressing costume which King George provides for his less elusive subjects?and we were shambling sullenly back along the gloomy road which leads through the plantation to the prison. The time was about four o?clock on a dull March afternoon. In the roadway, on either side of us, tramped an armed warder, his carbine in his hand, his eyes travelling with dull suspicion up and down the gang. Fifteen yards away, parallel with our route, the sombre figure of one of the civil guards kept pace with us through the trees. We were a cheery party!
