The only true crime I could ever do! I found it easy to read, well told. Such a different way of life! thought it did a great job at depicting Early Australian Colonial life. The story centers around 1862. The small burglary these bushmen thought they were conducting! I felt the amazement when they saw the quantity of gold. That was really great story telling. I cant believe I hadn’t heard about it ever! Such a hard way of life, really, and I felt so sorry for them, none of them were bad, just rascals…and that last scene!
