|Long Description||In a novel of sweeping narrative power unequaled since her worldwide bestseller The Thorn Birds, Colleen McCullough returns to Australia -- this time with the story of its birth. Richard Morgan, son of a Bristol tavern-keeper, is a contented man -- happily married, with a child he adores. His idyll crumbles when he is led into an ambiguous relationship with a beautiful young woman, whose dissolute protector seeks vengeance on Morgan to protect his own skin. Morgan endures the agonies of bereavement and financial loss, incarceration in prison and consignment as a convict to the famous "First Fleet" headed for the continent Captain Cook had discovered only a few years earlier. Aboard the notorious "hulks," Morgan suffers the horrors of the journey to Botany Bay, where he finds a new love and a new life. Morgan's Run is great fiction, full of drama, passion, history, love, and hatred, full-blooded and totally engrossing, taking us into a world we know little about, a stunning work that is at once rich entertainment -- and a revelation.|

Code39 also known as Code 3 of 9 allows you to encode text using characters A-Z and 0-9 and some punctuation. Using an extended encoding system, it is possible to encode the entire ASCII character set.
Each character is made up of 10 elements where 5 are bars and 5 are spaces. You may have seen this described as 9 elements on other sites where 5 are bars and 4 are spaces but there is always a narrow space stripe between characters which means we might as well consider that trailing narrow space part of each character making the total number of elements 10. The final trailing narrow space simply appears to be absorbed into the quiet zone to the right of the final barcode. There is no check digit in this symbology unlike others. The variation between the width of the bars is what define the value of each character.
In the image below you will notice the start and stop block are the same. In most Code39 fonts,this is encoded as the asterisk (*) character although it is not displayed under the barcode. The text under the barcode is optional and is for human use only. The start and stop asterisks are not decoded when scanned and may or maynot bedisplayed. Also how the text is displayed depends on the process used to create the barcodes. Often, the text is simply under the barcode without the indent displayed in our sample.
Normally, there are only 43 characters that can be encoded using Code39. But if you want to encode the full ASCII characterset, you can prefix letters with special characters to get the characters you need including lower case and special characters. Although it is possible to encode the full ASCII set, if you actually need to do this it is better to use Code128 because it will produce a smaller barcode.
