Ryle Winn had never had it so good. Happily married with grown-up children, he'd just bought his own cattle property and owned the smartest working dog around. Equally at home running brumbies up north or defending dispossessed property owners in court, Ryle had become used to expecting the unexpected - but he hadn't counted on a health crises that proved his biggest challenge yet.
The doctors classified Ryle as a survivor personality, and they weren't wrong. A different man emerged from the experience - one with the same larrikin sense of humour, but altered approach to life. This is the moving story of a man who reinvented himself by turning adversity to advantage, told in a distinctive, laconic style with remarkable candour and plenty of laughs.
