Mark Greenwood and Frané Lessac bring history to life. Moondyne Joe was not known for blazing gunfights or robbing banks! It was the convict bushranger’s amazing ability to escape every time he was placed behind bars that won him fame and the affection of the early WA settlers. This is the superb depiction of the greatest escape artist of Australia’s convict era.
