90pp. Octavo [20.5 cm] Rust colored paper over boards. Very good, in a very good dust jacket. The book is lightly rubbed at the extremities. The front endsheet has a previous owner's bookplate, plus a gift inscription, and a lengthy personal notation from the former owner, Tom Russell, American singer, songwriter, and painter.
From the dust jacket- "This collection brings together tales of Australia's pioneering days: the sagas and boastings of shearers, drowers and stockmen, and their pastimes- the sentimental yarning, drinking and romanticising..."
