Captain Moonlight: The enigmatic bushranger of 19th-century Australia

In the rugged landscapes of 19th-century Australia, where lawlessness and adventure reigned, one name stood out – Captain Moonlight. A bushranger with a reputation both feared and revered, his story remains an enigma to this day.
