About this event

Adam Courtenay’s The Ghost and the Bounty Hunter follows the escape of convict William Buckley from a settlement in 1803. A few months later, he is found near death, and is nursed back to health by the local Aboriginal people. For the next 32 years, Buckley thrives as Wadawurrung man, learning his adopted tribe’s language and way of life... before a betrayal sparks the frontier wars.


Join best-selling author and the son of Australia's best-loved storyteller, Adam Courtenay, at Dubbo Library as he chats about the book, the life of a historical non-fiction author, and the interesting facts he discovered while researching it.
