Notes

  • This is a collection of those very popular articles which ran weekly through The Bulletin, and pictured Australian country life and problems in amusing and yet authentic style. You feel that the author has definitely experienced some of the unpleasant dilemmas and fun-provoking situations in which he places his family of characters. (Comment on Outback Occupations on the back cover of The Warrumbungle Mare (1943)).
