Mistaken Identity: The Trials of Joe Windred by Stephen Dando-Collins

Another extraordinary true Australian tale discovered by the bestselling author of Crack Hardy, Stephen Dando-Collins.

Mistaken identity haunted Joseph Windred. It saw him wrongly convicted on two continents and almost cost him his life. But every time fate knocked him down, Joe got up, and came back stronger. His fighting spirit would make him a hero, and see him strike it rich. Little did the people of Orange NSW know when they twice elected Joseph Windred their mayor that this upstanding Windsor-born businessman, colonial hero and founder of their local jockey club had, in chains, helped build the San Quentin Penitentiary in San Francisco during the California gold rush, only to make a thrilling escape back to Australia. And that, technically, Joe was still a fugitive from American justice. There was a lot about Joe people didn't know.

In an amazing life, Joe also overcame physical disability to become a champion boxer, chased down a bushranger on his racehorse, saved the lives of children on a runaway dray, almost drowned trying to save a woman in a flooded creek, and struck gold near Bathurst.

Joe Windred's courage in the face of repeated, extraordinary and life-changing adversity marks him as one of the most inspiring figures in the history of ordinary Australians.
