The stor??ies in this book are about real people?, and hail from back in days gone by. These were good friends and comrades? who stuck together; they came from all walks of life, worked hard, drank hard? - and fought at the drop of a hat?.
They toiled in the outback of Australia on construction jobs ?building road?s and railways, and dams? and harbours for the iron ore ?industry; ?they laboured ??in gold and copper mines, as stockmen on ?giant cattle stations, ?as fishermen around the north coast and ?in many other professions, some legal and some otherwise?.
Not your average law-abiding and God-fearing citizens, these were real Aussies of the outback?.
The stor?ies have been ?fictionalised to protect those still in the land of the living.
