William Buckley, soldier and escaped convict, is the legendary wild white man of colonial Australia. This giant of a man led a life so extraordinary that we would otherwise have had to invent it. In 1803 he escaped from the first official settlement in Victoria, near Sorrento on Port Phillip Bay. For 32 years he lived with Aborigines around the bay before giving himself up in 1835.

In this remarkable book, first published in Hobart in 1852, Buckley tells his own story of life beyond the frontier. Brilliantly edited and introduced by Tim Flannery, 'The Life & Adventures Of William Buckley' is the ultimate survival story of early Australia, and provides an extraordinary insight into pre-contact Aboriginal society.
