All the yarns were told to the author first-hand so the voice of the storyteller is strong and clear. These yarns spinners are authentic outback characters - cattlemen and stockmen, farmers and drovers, labourers - and the stories touch on every aspect of their lives to create a remarkable picture of Australian bush society. Ron Edwards has travelled the outback collecting yarns for many years, and adds to the collection a perceptive essay analysing the structure of the yarn.
