Steps to The Scaffold - the untold story of Tasmania's black aboriginal bushrangers
 
(0 reviews)  

This book tells of the extraordinary tales of Tasmania's aboriginal bushrangers.

Not many people know that the first two men publicly executed in Melbourne were Tasmanian Aborigines, Pevay and Timmy. Or that the spark for Tasmania's Black War of 1826/31 was an exiled mainland Aborigine named Musquito who had once worked for Lieutenant-Governor Sorell and other prominent colonists in Van Diemen's Land.

Or that Black Tom Birch, a Tasmanian Aborigine who turned his back on the wealthy Hobart family that raised him and then cut a murderous swathe through south-eastern Tasmania, was captured three times but never punished - and then died in the service of the white settlers he had once persecuted.
