Never be too sure about what you have been told

From Jim Haynes, one of our most successful and prolific tellers of yarns and bush tales, comes this collection of classic Australian stories ... the unknown, the forgotten, the surprising.

Jim reminds us that things are not always as they seem, or as we've been told.

Was the Ghan really named after the Afghan cameleers?

Does the urn that represents the greatest of all sporting clashes between Australia and England really contain the ashes of a burnt cricket bail?

And who really is the most important Australian who ever lived? Jim introduces us to the forgotten nation builders, artists, poets and great unknown characters of Australian history and tells the funniest, the most amazing and the quirkiest stories that capture the heart and soul of the Australian spirit. (Rear cover text).
