Blurb: Even though Midnite was 17, he wasn’t very bright. So when his father died his five animal friends decided to look after him. Khat, the Siamese cat, suggested he became a bushranger and Red Ned his horse offered to help. But it wasn’t very easy, especially when Trooper O’Grady kept putting him in prison. So it was just as well that in the end he found gold!
