Bushrangers

Books » Our lists » Bushrangers

The sometimes lauded, often loathed and always leery antiheroes of Australian colonial mythology.

The biggest beards, the baddest breath, the boldest bandits. In a volley of bullets they exit town on a stolen horse. And the longer they go bush, the larger their legend becomes. Here are some books about bushrangers: the downtrodden underdogs of colonial folklore.
