Works about this Work

Goodbye, Mick Considine Frank Clune , 1944 single work autobiography
— Appears in: The Red Heart : Sagas of Centralia 1944; (p. 5-14)
Clune recalls a time when he was in Broken Hill and was fortunate enough to be invited to accompany the Royal Flying Doctor Service on a call to attend a stockman on an outback station. Unfortunately, they were too late to save the sixteen-year-old and, as Clune assisted in packing up the boy's belongings, he was overwhelmed to find that the boy had been reading a poignant poem just before he left his hut.
