This inspiring collection features nine captivating stories about ordinary bush men and women who lead extraordinary lives. Hailing from places as far apart as Lake Eyre, the Gulf of Carpentaria and the Barrier Reef, there's the island cattleman who swims his cattle past sharks and beady-eyed crocs; the pineapple grower who builds a stone church for his community; the champion woodchopper who smashes all the records and the 88-year-old dairywoman who saves the lives of a cow and her calf.
Author Rhylle Winn has an engaging, larrikin style that effortlessly draws the reader into the lives of these real-life Aussie heroes. The stories are moving, funny and at times will have you on the edge of your seat. A great read.
