“I’m reading ‘Robbery Under Arms’ by Rolf Boldrewood, which I picked it up because it’s an Australian classic despite my thought it might be a stodgy read — it was published in 1881. I was completely wrong! I’m spellbound by this frontier tale of Captain Starlight and the Marston boys: bushrangers, cattle rustlers but generally sympathetic scallywags as they evade the law through goldfields and bush country. It is deservedly a classic.”
