What do you really know about Australia's bushrangers? 

Bushrangers are Australian legend, but not all Australian bushrangers were seen in a glowing light in their own time. And not all were white men. In Boundary Crossers, historian Meg Foster reveals the stories of bushrangers who didn’t fit the model. African American man Black Douglas, who was seen as the terror of the Victorian goldfields, Sam Poo, known as Australia’s only Chinese bushranger, Aboriginal man Jimmy Governor, who was renowned as a mass murderer, and Captain Thunderbolt’s partner, Aboriginal woman Mary Ann Bugg, whose extraordinary exploits extended well beyond her time as ‘the Captain’s Lady’.

These remarkable lives have been forgotten, misrepresented or erased from the national story for over a century, and this is no accident. There is far more to these bushrangers, and their histories, which Foster now brings to light.
