Robbery under Arms

Rolf Boldrewood

Book Overview: 

A tale of cattle duffing, horse stealing and bushranging in the New South Wales outback with Captain Starlight.

A lifelong residence in Australia may be accepted as a guarantee for fidelity as to local color and descriptive detail.

One of ye write a line to your mother and tell her where you're off to, or she'll be frettin' herself and the gal too—frettin' over what can't be helped. But I suppose it's the natur' o' some women.'

We done our settling-up next day. All the sale money was paid over to Starlight. He cashed the cheques and drew the lot in notes and gold—such a bundle of 'em there was. He brought them out to us at the camp, and then we 'whacked' the lot. There were eight of us that had to shar. . . Read More
