Our popular crossword feature returns with a puzzle based on The Last of the Bushrangers, a lively 19th-Century account of the capture of a gang of Australian robbers, written by a former police superintendent who was there.
In order to solve the puzzle, first read the book — it’s entertaining — then decide how you want to proceed:
- Use the interactive version. Just click on a blank square and the corresponding clue pops up. Type in the answer and click OK (or, if you’re stumped, click the Solve button). Clicking the Check Puzzle button at the bottom gives the number of errors and incomplete words, if you want to see how you’re getting on.
- Use the printable PDF version to print out the puzzle and solve it the old-fashioned way, with your favorite writing implement. Check your solution with the PDF answer key. No peeking! (But who’s to know?)
