Bushranger Bill loves Tourmaline Lil, and brings her treasures from far and near to furnish the bower he has built for her. But others have eyes for Lil, especially the bad Captain Bluff, who snatches her away. Bushranger Bill has her right on his side, and a clever plan as well, and so he dons a cunning disguise to trap the evil Captain Bluff.
As the felon discovers: “When you go thieving you can sure get into strife, But you’ve got to take the consequences – that’s the law Such is life.”
Perfect younger reader story with a traditional Australian flavour.
