Wild Bush Days

Penny Harrison, Virginia Gray

In this wild and unruly adventure, we meet Jessie Hickman, the Lady Bushranger, as she soars through the rough Australian landscape. Following her tail (and tale) are two contemporary sisters who feel Jessie in the wind and hear the galloping of her historical horse in every crunch of their footsteps.
An adventurous story that immortalises a bold and daring woman.
