Arthur W. Upfield

An Englishman by birth, Arthur Upfield tried his luck in Australia in 1911. After a short spell as a waiter in Adelaide, Upfield felt drawn towards the Interior where he became a boundary-rider, offside-driver, cattle-drover, opal-gouger, rabbit-trapper, vermin fence patroller and manager of a camel station, drifting through the strange terrains and unusual company which were later to become the subject of his 35 novels, including 29 featuring Napoleon Bonaparte, or ‘Bony’ the Aboriginal detective. These books began in 1929 with The Barrakee Mystery. In the early 1970s there were 26 BONEY episodes made for TV, and a new series for international TV will begin in 2019.
