The thought of escape has played on the minds of many prisoners, locked away in cells or forced to labour for long hours each day.

This book tells the story of escapes and attempted escapes from Queensland's most notorious prison. The redbrick walls that surround the prison were supposed to make it escape-proof.

The stories in this book show that prisoners had other ideas, and many of them tried to gain their freedom using ropes, bedsheets, saws, hooks, keys, bar spreaders, guns, trucks and a combination of ingenuity, stupidity and opportunism.

Not all of them are 'classic' escape stories, but they all help tell the story of how the Boggo Road Gaol did (or did not do) it's job.
