These are Australia's most notorious bushrangers. In the 1800s, bushrangers roamed the Australian countryside. They robbed and stole and murdered when it suited them. They flouted the law and terrified the population. But who were these villains and what drove them to a life of crime? History is vividly brought to life by Paula Hunt in The Wild Colonial Boys.
