AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'William Buckley was a six-foot-seven British convict who escaped from the first British penal colony established in the southeastern part of the Australian continent in 1803, and he would go on to spend the next thirty-three years living among the local Aborigines until he was discovered by settlers of the region in 1835. From Dreamtime to Armageddon tells the fascinating story of William Buckley, Australias very own Robinson Crusoe. Relying on a mix of fact and fiction, author Phillip Gray weaves a first-hand narrative that takes us into the mind of William Buckley as he lives out his adventure following his sentencing to a lifes imprisonment in a faraway landa land that would become his new home. William Buckley would experience a new life, a new land, and a new culture, and he would go on to be embraced by the people he meets. From his initial arrival aboard the Calcutta to his life with the Aborigines, William Buckleys life stands as a compelling testimony to the human spirit and to our search for freedom and peace.' (Publication summary)
