For the Term of His Natural Life, an interactive eBook for the iPad, launched an educational and historical infographic this week on world history. The infographic, History of the British Penal Colonies, is designed to further enrich public education on colonial history, and outlines the travels of the British prisoners to America and Australia through simple, appealing illustrations.

The infographic details events and historical figures, and displays boat routes of prisoners from Great Britain to the American Colonies and Australia. It is currently displayed on the blog of APPSPIRE.me, a leading mobile app marketing agency.

“This is an important part of world literature, history and culture,” said the app’s creator, Patricia Payne, who also co-wrote the popular mini-series based on Clarke’s novel.

Based on the classic Australian novel by Marcus Clarke, For the Term of His Natural Life app features text from the book interspersed with segments of the T.V. mini-series presenting a seamless and multimedia story experience.

For the Term of His Natural Life is a riveting tale of Rufus Dawes, falsely accused of murder in 19th century London. He is transported as a convict to a harsh penal settlement in Tasmania, Australia. Despite his sentence, Rufus Dawes’s quest for freedom never dies. The infographic illustrates that, though many of us can trace our heritage back to the Old Country, a number of our ancestors arrived in America and Australia by force, not choice, and this map depicts their travels.
