Text Classics

In 1803 the convict William Buckley, a former soldier, escaped from the first official settlement in Victoria, near Sorrento on Port Phillip Bay. For three decades the 'wild white man' lived with Aborigines around the bay, before giving himself up in 1835. First published in 1852, The Life and Adventures William Buckley is the ultimate survival story of early Australia and provides an extraordinary insight into pre-contact indigenous society.
