eBook (ePub): $3.99
Robbery Under Arms: A Story of Life and Adventure In the Bush and In the Goldfields of Australia by Rolf Boldrewood. True tale of the wilder aspects of Australian life. It will do no discredit to...

A lifelong residence in Australia may be accepted as a guarantee for fidelity as to local colour and descriptive detail. I take this opportunity of acknowledging the prompt and liberal recognition of the tale by the proprietors of the Sydney Mail, but for which it might never have seen the light.< Less
