            They cut his thick beard from his face a few days ago and now the rope will have to do its work around the stubble on his neck. It's early on the morning of 20 January 1880 as Andrew George Scott, one of Australia's last genuine bushrangers, is led to the gallows. Nosey Bob, the ...Sydney hangman, has been told Scott's weight and height. He's also measured the drop and checked the rope a dozen times. A man can't be too sure these days. He's botched a few hangings over the years, has Bob, his victims writhing and squirming for ages at the end of the rope. This one he needs to get right. Can't have the tabloids and the public saying he stuffed up when it came to stretching the neck of Captain Moonlite. Scott, the self-declared Captain Moonlite, is a shadow of the man who, along with his gang, had held up the Wantabadgery station, 30 miles out of Gundagai, just a few months earlier. He is gaunt and lean and there is fear in his eyes. Around one of his fingers he wears a ring woven from the hair of the true love of his life, James Nesbitt, a young man he had met in prison a few years earlier. The business at Wantabadgery where Moonlite's gang had held up to 40 people hostage ended with a shootout with the police - a bad one - and Nesbitt had been gunned down during the firefight. No-one could quite believe what happened next. That was the end of Moonlite. He fell to his knees and cradled Nesbitt in his arms, weeping inconsolably and kissing him passionately. In prison Moonlite has penned a letter that will not be found for more than a century. My dying wish is to be buried beside my beloved James Nesbitt, the man with whom I was united by every tie which could bind human friendship, he writes. We were one in hopes, in heart and soul and this unity lasted until he died in my arms. The story of Captain Moonlite is largely unknown in Australia. Yet it is one of the most incredible tales to emerge out of the 19th century when a young and largely lawless nation was held to rans

            In the early 1800as a French veteran of Napoleon Bonaparteas wars escapes to New Zealand from the penal settlement of New South Wales. After being captured, he chances his way into the inner-sanctum of a powerful Maori tribe. Soon he is within a hairs-breadth of becoming heir to ...the throne. He is caught-up in a terrifying inter-tribal war, and even as a seasoned campaigner, he is over-awed by the brutality and bravery of it all. Intertwined through this riveting tale is an abandoned nymph-like white girl who captivates our French adventurer to the point that she costs him his position and standing among the Maoris. Amidst all of the beauty and savagery that is New Zealand, the author brings the reader with him into the valleys and dells of the lush tropical rain forests, to the snow-capped mountain peaks, and to the peaceful bays and inlets of a country so abundant in natures finery we can touch each dew-drenched leaf and be intoxicated by each delicate plant and flower. One can immediately feel absorbed in this land, abounding in beauty in all its untamed forms just prior to white settlement in the late 1840as.
