Take a journey with one of Australia's most accessible history and science writers into an early Australia that extends beyond the Wild Colonial Boy and the Kelly Gang. Discover the endearing Moondyne Joe and Diver Fitzgerald, scallywags rather than villains, as well as some who affected a gentlemanly front, a sort of false gallantry that did not sit well with their thieving ways, plus the thugs with no saving graces. Entertaining and original Australian history. Discover our earliest and most little-known practitioners of the art of bushranging. Beautifully designed, the book features choice, and little seen, illustrations. Peter Macinnis has been a teacher in the classroom and at both Sydney's Powerhouse and the Australian Museum. He has written more than 40 books, most on science and history, and many have won awards. Peter lives in Sydney.
