The extraordinary survival story of William Buckley (1780-1856), ‘the wild white man’, edited and introduced by Tim Flannery.

In 1803 the convict William Buckley, a former soldier, escaped from the first official settlement in Victoria, near Sorrento on Port Phillip Bay. For three decades the 'wild white man' lived with Aborigines around the bay, before giving himself up in 1835. First published in 1852, The Life and Adventures William Buckley is the ultimate survival story of early Australia and provides an extraordinary insight into pre-contact indigenous society.
Industry Reviews
`This account, in Buckley's words...has all the elements of a Boy's Own yarn: convicts, savages, privations, wars, cannibalism, survival, treachery and the founding of a colony.' * Herald Sun *
`Flannery has done us a service first by reissuing the story of a fascinating adventure from 200 years ago, and then by setting these events in perspective with his lucid introduction.' * Canberra Times *
