A definitive history of Ben Hall, his gang and associates – the true story of the notorious bushranger Ben Hall, proving that the romantic notions that have built up around this villain are completely false.  Here is a great wealth of information about Hall’s early life as well as his unlawful activities and this volume includes every known photograph  of him at the time of publication (1985).  There is a section devoted to the firearms of this period, exposing errors by other authors who have covered Ben Hall and this period of Australian history.  Lavishly illustrated with photos, documents and newspaper articles. The author was made a Fellow of the Australian Institute of History and Arts in 1980.
