Abstract:

In this book, the first "anthology" of Australian bushranging, the editor has brought together a variety of narratives from contemporary writers illustrative of that disreputable phase of Australian history which has long since been relegated to the past. From the desperate exploits of Michael Howe in the early days of Tasmania, to the reign of terror by the Kelly gang in the late seventies of the last century, a general view of the bush-ranging era is presented in the words of the writers of those days when the "gentlemen of the road" flourished in Australia. Many volumes long since out of print have been searched, revealing thrilling stories of the gold digging days, and the preceding years in New South Wales, Tasmania, and Victoria. The illustrations, comprising scenes and portraits redrawn from old illustrated papers and periodicals, sustain the atmosphere of the narratives.
