Robbery Under Arms : A Story of a Story of Life and Adventure in the Bush and in the Goldfields of Australia (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Robbery Under Arms: A Story of a Story of Life and Adventure in the Bush and in the Goldfields of Australia Why should I curse the day? Why do I lie here, groaning yes, crying like a child, and beating my head against the stone ﬂoor? I am not mad, though I am shut up in a cell. No. Better for me if I was. But it's all up now; there's no get away this time 5 and I, Dick Marston, as strong as a bullock, as' active as a. Rock-wallaby, chock-full of life and spirits and health, have been tried for bush-ranging - robbery under arms they call it - and though the blood runs through my veins like the water in the mountain creeks, and every bit of bone and sinew is as sound as the day I was born, I must die on the gallows this day month.
