Summary
  • In late 1999, Bill 'Swampy' Marsh began to collect shearing stories. This collection brings to life a world of outback stations, larrikins, roustabouts, sagacious dogs and babbling brooks whose blood is worth bottling. Part bush yarns, part social history, this book is a worthy successor to Marsh's 'Great Flying Doctor Stories'.
