AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Robert Macklin combines meticulous research with a brilliant imagination to recreate Gardiner's world in Australia and the land of his exile, the United States. Although fictional, this rollicking read provides a unique insight into young Australia at a time when colonial oppression sparked rage in the underdog and among the rebels of the bush. It is also a celebration of Frank Gardiner himself, the quintessential romantic embodiment of the Australian version of the Highwayman. (Publisher's blurb)
