From the first convict runaways to the spectacular showdown that ended Ned Kelly's career, bushranging has fascinated generations of Australians with swashbuckling tales of daring exploits, extraordinary horsemanship and courage under fire. In The Bushrangers , Evan McHugh explores the incredible stories of the men (and women) who achieved fame t just by what they did, but by the way they did it. They include heroic figures like Cash and Company, the prince of bushrangers Matthew Brady, Bold Jack Dohue, brave Ben Hall, Captain Thunderbolt and of course, Ned Kelly. They also include villains like Pearce The Cannibal, Jeffries the Monster and 'Mad Dog' Morgan. The result is a narrative that's as fast paced as a stolen thoroughbred and will bail up your attention as bushrangers go from down-trodden underdogs to self-made heroes, helping to forge Australia's identity. With extensive first-hand accounts and meticulous research, McHugh stands and delivers.
