'The third in a series that explores our secret history

'By the 1790s orphaned Barney Bean finally has his own farm in the early NSW colony. All his dreams are coming true!

But now we are to learn of Barney's biggest secret yet: how he helped Australia's first bushranger escape.

'Was Black Caesar a wronged man, an ex-slave who vowed to be free? Or was he a laughing villain, a trickster who planned to terrorise the colony?

'And in helping him, did Barney do right or wrong?

'You decide.' (Publication summary)
