"Everyone has heard of Ned Kelly, Thunderbolt, and Ben Hall, but few know the name Sandamara, or Pigeon, as the white man called him, an outlaw whose story is as thrilling as any. He planned and tried to carry out, as probably no other man of his race has done, a scheme to drive the white people from his country of the Kimberleys and the King Leopold Ranges - and for a time he seemed almost to have a sporting chance of succeeding."
