Upon arriving in Australia in 1964, Al had an immediate interest in Australian history, the bush, and has traced the path of many early Australian explorers across the Red Centre of Australia.
He concurrently developed an interest in Australian Bushrangers and also traced the path of these early Australians across most states.
After many years of studying the early Australian explorers, colonial Police and the Australian Bushrangers, Al as the subjects of the book, also found Almighty God, albeit, whilst climbing a rocky mountain in Queensland.
Since writing his latest book, Australian Bushrangers, the Police and God, Al has spoken at numerous locations on this historical and yet very topical subject and is available to talk at your club meeting, your association meeting or at your church, as an evening function or at a breakfast meeting. Al does not charge for any of these seminars or Australian Bushranger talks and would welcome your invitation.
The key to Al writing this latest book was of course his very close connection to Ned Kelly and the Kelly homestead site at Glenrowan West. Al as a rural retreat in the hills that surround the Kelly Homestead site, his retreat is set high in the adjacent hills and was more than likely a key lookout for both the police and Kelly sympathisers, onto Ned Kellys childhood home at Eleven Mile Creek.
Al is available to talk at your club meeting, your association meeting or at your church, as an evening function or at a breakfast meeting. Elderly Citizens Clubs, Probus Clubs, Football Clubs, Retirement Villages, Church Groups, Mens Breakfasts, are all welcome to invite Al to do a presentation.
