Guide to Australias most notorious bushrangers

Australians have always had a soft spot for the daring bushrangers of last century with their contempt for organised authority. In fact, Ned Kelly is still considered almost a hero by some. Bill Scott looks at the most notorious of Australia's bushrangers - men who were fugitives from the law, who robbed, stole stock and sometimes killed. Bill's lively and interesting text is accompanied by a selection of illustrations and photographs from the period. Some popular poems, which express the sentiment of 'bushranger as hero' in many cases, are also included.
