In 1803 a young English convict named William Buckley escaped from Victoria's first settlement at Sorrento. In 1835, Buckley rejoined the civilisation he had cast aside, engaging to meet Melbourne's founders, becoming an important guide and interpreter in the crucial first years of the European conquest of the Port Phillip region.
1980. First edition. A very good copy only marked by age tanning to the pages and a few spots to the edges. The d/w is near fine with light edge bumping and very mild sunfading to the spine.
