Wild Colonial Boys offers a bold and exciting look at the bushranging period of Australia's colonial history. It takes the reader on a chronological journey from the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 to the tormented years of Port Arthur and Norfolk Island, and on to the saga of the last of the fighting and defiant Irishmen, Ned Kelly. Includes more than 200 photographs, engravings and items of ephemera. A revised and totally redesigned classic which includes the full version of Ned Kelly's Jerilderie Letter and features a brand new chapter on the bushranger myth in the 21st century. This is pictorial history at its finest.


Here in one magnificently illustrated volume is the essence of Australia's rich and unique folklore: shearers and drovers, squatters and selectors, bushrangers and troopers, all the indelible folk heroes of our past, and new ones too. No country has a more robust folklore than Australia, nor so distinct a language. Richly humorous, yet full of epics and stark tragedy, this collection is for all ages.
