Bony was the world’s first Aboriginal crime hero in fiction, who became one of Australia’s biggest publishing success stories. He solved bizzare murder mysteries in the Australian outback with his uncanny knowledge of the land and his ingenious tracking skills. He was created by English author Arthur Upfield. Today the Bony books sell in their millions overseas while in Australia the books are out of print and Bony is virtually unknown. This is the story of Upfield, and the events that inspired his contraversial character.
