Harry Readford alias Captain Starlight, by John Morrison
The story of Harry Readford (sometimes Redford), born in 1841 on the frontier of the infant colony of New South Wales, and who became a proficient bushman, stockman, drover, explorer, pioneer, and, above all, a renowned cattle duffer, has passed into Australian folklore.
The pivotal event was the famous theft of cattle in 1870 of 1200 head from the Longreach area, and then droving them nearly 1600km through virtually unexplored country deep into South Australia. This, and the infamous Roma trial in 1873, was portrayed in Rolf Boldrewood's "Robbery Under Arms".
This book incorporates a complete series of landscape, portrait and narrative paintings, drawings, photographs, maps and text.
With page 133 by Winston Readford.
