Stories from the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame

These one hundred and fifty true stories give voice to the many men and women who played an important part in establishing Australia's pioneering spirit but who mostly didn't make it into the history books. Drawn from the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame 'Unsung Heroes' database, they reveal the characters who were drovers, property owners, shearers, missionaries and amateur explorers.

They bring outback history alive as do tales of the bush folk who built the fences, baked the bread, taught the children, provided entertainment, shod the horses, tended the sick and enforced the law. From veteran expeditioner Ned Ryan, to possum trapper Harry Stevens, Boer War veteran Jack Kyle-Little and eccentric pioneers Charles and Cora Chalmers, these are stories of resilience, courage and luck, about people with more grit than an outback sandstorm.

'This is the essence of what Banjo Paterson and Henry Lawson wrote about . . .' John Williamson All royalites from the sales of this book go to the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre. Situated in Queensland's central western town of Longreach, it is Australia's premier outback heritage destination.
