Summary
San Francisco, 1856. Irish-born James 'Yankee' Sullivan is being held in jail by the Committee of Vigilance, which aims to rout the Australian criminals from the town. As Sullivan's mistress seeks his release and as his fellow prisoners are taken away to be hanged, the convict tells a story of triumph and tragedy, of his daring escape from penal servitude in Australia; how he became America's most celebrated boxer; and how he met the true love of his life
