AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Unforgettable characters emerge from this vintage Herb Wharton collection which ranges from city to bush, from tall tales to amusing parables. There's Rainbow Jack the opal digger; Dr Roo, who when the dingbats are upon him boxes his own shadow; and stockmen with nicknames such as Wild Duck, Grease Paint and Diamond Jim.

'Along with campfire yarns and memories drawn from childhood are stories from Herb's other life in the big city and on the literary trail.' (Publication summary)
