Booker prize winning novel is a true gem. If you love an old fashioned western with the rich land barons and the new “law” persecuting the poor farmers and ranchers, then this novel is for you.
Excerpt from author’s site:
To his own people, the lowly class of ordinary Australians, the bushranger is a hero, defying the authority of the English to direct their lives. Indentured by his bootlegger mother to a famous horse thief (who was also her lover), Ned saw his first prison cell at 15 and by the age of 26 had become the most wanted man in the wild colony of Victoria, taking over whole towns and defying the law until he was finally captured and hanged. Here is a classic outlaw tale, made alive by the skill of a great novelist. Sample the novel HERE
