AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It is widely believed the phrase “Buckley’s chance” refers to William Buckley, an escaped convict who staggered out of the bush in 1835, dressed in kangaroo and possum skins and carrying a spear and a club. He had survived for 30 years, having been taken in by the Wadawurrung ­people. At the time, the story of the Wild White Man gripped the public imagination.' (Introduction)
