Australia's Greatest Bush Stories

The men and women you'll meet in this fascinating book come in all shapes and sizes, from convicts and engineers to cattle-duffers and anthropologists. These remarkable Australians share an extraordinary ability to survive the rigours of the bush. In Outback Heroes, Evan McHugh brings together his favourite ripping yarns from the Australian frontier. He begins with escaped convict William Buckley, who emerged from the forest after thirty-two years in the wild; re-examines the legends of the Man from Snowy River and Waltzing Matilda; recounts one of the most stunning rescues in Australian history; and relives the 2000 Olympics Opening Ceremony.

These and other true stories of courage and ingenuity remind us how the Australian character was forged – through encounters with the bush, desert and outback.
