AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An authentic and entertaining first-hand account of life in the Australian bush from the 1920s to the 1950s. Under the Mulga follows Jim Gasteen's childhood adventures, marriage and his life-long love affair with the land, which saw him eventually become an unlikely champion of land management.With a knack for storytelling, Jim Gasteen recounts classic tales of outback life – the bullockies, governesses and swaggies; the shearing, horse-breaking and fencing. His reminiscences tell of colourful characters, an unforgiving landscape, and a sense of community and camaraderie that makes Australian bush life unique.Full of wisdom, warmth and humour, Under the Mulga vividly brings to life this all-but-forgotten era in our pastoral history.'
