ROLF BOLDREWOOD
(PSEUDONYM OF THOMAS ALEXANDER BROWNE)
Australian (English-born) novelist
(1826 - 1915)
  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

My name's Dick Marston, Sydney-side native. I'm twenty-nine years old, six feet in my stocking soles, and thirteen stone weight. Pretty strong and active with it, so they say. I don't want to blow--not here, any road--but it takes a good man to put me on my back, or stand up to me with the gloves, or the naked mauleys. I can ride anything--anything that ever was lapped in horsehide--swim like a musk-duck, and track like a Myall blackfellow. Most things that a man can do I'm up to, and that's all about it.
