Description

The best-known image of the 19th-century Australian outlaws is inevitably the iron-armored Kelly gang of 1880, but in fact the colony’s frontier criminals varied widely in character/ They included desperate runaway convicts, who were sometimes even reduced to cannibalism; flashy ‘gentlemen highwaymen’; and organized bandit gangs, who preyed on traffic during the Gold Rush, rustles livestock and robbed banks. This book traces the story of bushranging and law enforcement alike, illustrated with prints and early photos, and with striking new color plates detailing the appearance of bushrangers and of the soldiers and police who hunted them down.
