By the 1790s, orphaned Barney Bean finally has his own farm in the early NSW colony. All his dreams are coming true!
Black Caesar claims he is an ex-slave who vowed to be free. Or is he a laughing villain, a trickster who plans to terrorise the colony?
Should Barney help him? Or does he risk losing everything - including his life?
In this third title in The Secret Histories series, award-winning author and Children's Laureate Jackie French has researched the life of little-known John Black Caesar, who was Australia's first recorded bushranger.
