Description

Marauding bushrangers, lost explorers, mad shepherds, new chums and mounted troopers- these are some of the characters who populate the often perilous world of colonial Australian adventure fiction. Squatters defend their hard-earned properties from attack, while floods and other natural disasters threaten to wipe any trace of settlement away. Colonial Australian adventure fiction takes its characters on a journey into remote and unfamiliar territory, often in pursuit of wealth and well-being. But these journeys are invariably fraught with danger, and everything comes at a price. This anthology collects the best examples of colonial Australian adventure fiction, with stories by Ernest Favenc, Louis Becke, Rosa Praed, Guy Boothby, and many others. Also available in this series- The Anthology of Colonial Australian Gothic Fiction The Anthology of Colonial Australian Crime Fiction The Anthology of Colonial Australian Romance Fictionshow more
