the European settlement of terra Australis was motivated by a desire to find somewhere to put people who didn t fit in. Right from the start Australia has taken that spirit and propagated it. NOtORIOUS AUStRALIANS is a selection of true life stories and biographies taken from all walks of life - from convicts and bushrangers to the ladies of the night, right up to the boardrooms of the city and to heads of government. Some of the tales are of hapless stupidity, some tell of victims and their emotions and dark needs, some are funny, some are gruesome. there are stories of bravery, ingenuity and serendipity. A quirky and entertaining reference book on Australia's infamous personalities.
