AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The narrator looks back to the days of uncontrolled blackbirding and bemoans the restrictions introduced with legislation and military patrols, which limited the activities of blackbirders. He relates a number of anecdotes about the notorious Bully Hayes whom he appears to regard as an heroic figure, despite his brutality, dishonesty, and callous treatment of Islander women.
