Hardback. Revised and Re-Edited. The Australian bushrangers were an unlikely mixture of wild, reckless, romantic or desperate men. They included Pierce the cannibal; Scott, the mad preacher who became 'Captain Moonlite'; Jackey Jackey the 'gentleman bushranger'; bloodthirsty Dan Morgan; Ned Kelly, taunting the police in his iron armour. The author's classic history is a comprehensive and accurate account of Australian bushranging. Here are the real stories of the famous figures : the Kellys, Ben Hall, Martin Cash, Matthew Brady, Captain Melville, Thunderbolt, Gardiner's gang and the Clarke Brothers. Here too, are the exploits of lesser-known but equally intriguing bandits : Edward Davis the Jewish bushranger; the Chinese bushranger of Coonabarabran; Alpin McPherson, the apprentice stonemason who terrorised Queensland; Fred Lowry, who died uttering the immortal plea: 'Tell'em I died game.' Regarded as one of the best-researched and most detailed history of its kind. With Map eps, Profusely Illus., Picture Sources, Reference Notes and Index. 208pp. 4to. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg. lacks dw. A heavy book which will require additional postage, particularly if shipped overseas.
