The story of an Australian Bushranger.

Captain Thunderbolt Frederick Wordsworth Ward, better known as 'Captain Thunderbolt', was a bushranger who plagued New South Wales for almost seven years during one of the longest bushranging 'careers' in history.

Thunderbolt was intelligent, charming and courageous; a great storyteller who enjoyed much public support. Although a horse thief and a highway robber, he has become something of a romantic figure of Australia's past.

Many legends have grown up around him - stories of a devoted husband and father, a gentleman, a lover of music and literature; a man who hated violence and a victim of the law. The truth, however, is quite a different story.

This book provides a brief biography of Thunderbolt's life and some of his more notable exploits, and refutes many of the popular myths that surround him.
