About the Event
This Audacious Kidd was written after Bertie heard and read misleading accounts of his activities. Repeatedly urged on by fellow criminals, screws and coppers to write his own version of events. He finally felt compelled to tell his story when he was threatened with deportation to England upon his release from prison. He began an ultimately successful legal battle to remain in Australia which has given him the time to write his memoirs.
He has been written about in dozens of books some with a level of truth and others not.
This story is the true story as he knows it. Over many hours spent reviewing the events of his past with the author, this book carefully crafts a narrative from memories of time past as best as one could achieve.
