Category: 
True Crime

Captain Edward Denny Day – the only law 'from the Big River to the sea' – was Australia’s greatest lawman, yet few have heard of him. This is his story.

Once there was a wilderness: Australia’s frontier, a dangerous and unforgiving place where outlaws ruled the roads and killers were hailed as heroes. It was here, in 1838, that one man’s uncompromising sense of justice changed history and shocked the world.
