Robbery Under Arms

Book cover
By: (1826-1915)

Robbery Under Arms by Rolf Boldrewood is a thrilling tale of bushrangers in Australia during the 19th century. The story follows the Marston brothers, Dick and Jim, as they become outlaws and turn to a life of crime to support their family.

The fast-paced narrative is filled with exciting adventures, narrow escapes, and dramatic encounters with law enforcement. Boldrewood's vivid descriptions of the Australian landscape bring the setting to life, transporting readers to the rugged and untamed outback.

The characters are complex and well-developed, with Dick Marston serving as a compelling anti-hero who struggles with his conscience as he navigates the moral ambiguity of his actions. Jim, on the other hand, is more reckless and impulsive, leading the brothers into increasingly dangerous situations.

Overall, Robbery Under Arms is a gripping and engaging read that offers a fascinating glimpse into the wild and lawless world of bushrangers in colonial Australia. Boldrewood’s storytelling skills, combined with his detailed historical research, make this novel a timeless classic that will captivate readers of all ages.

Book Description:
A tale of cattle duffing, horse stealing and bushranging in the New South Wales outback with Captain Starlight.
To quote the author "though presented in the guise of fiction, this chronicle of the Marston family must not be set down by the reader as wholly fanciful or exaggerated. Much of the narrative is literally true, as can be verified by official records. A lifelong residence in Australia may be accepted as a guarantee for fidelity as to local colour and descriptive detail."
