    'For over forty years working in the cattle industry of Western Queensland Herb Wharton would always say "I'm going to write a story one day about the things that I see happening around me". In this book of short stories Herb Wharton talks about how he began a successful literary career, and some of the stories behind his writings. After having a series of books published by the University of Queensland Press, Herb sees this self-published volume as a milestone in his career.' (Source: Keeaira Press website)
