Here are the exploits of some of Australia’s most notorious bushrangers, who robbed, stole livestock and sometimes killed. They have been described as brave, bad, loyal, reckless and courageous. In the 19th century they captured the headlines because of the imaginative ways that they eluded police. Bushrangers tells the stories of Ned Kelly, Mad Dan Morgan, Captain Moonlite and other famous outlaws. And it shows us why we still remember these dashing and reckless individuals and why their deeds are immortalised in songs, films and books.
