Author(s): Jim Haynes
From Jim Haynes, one of Australia's most successful and prolific authors, comes a collection of classic Australian stories, yarns, and furphies. . . all of them unknown. Things are not always as they seem, or as we've been told. Was the Ghan really named after the Afghan traders, and do we really know what the Ashes are? From the remote outback and cattle stations to coastal towns, Jim introduces us to the liars and larrikins, the bushies and the stockmen, to tell the funniest, the most amazing, and the most eccentric stories that capture the heart of the Australian spirit.
Jim Haynes is a professional entertainer, song writer, and verse writer, and has taught writing, literature, history, and drama in schools and universities from outback New South Wales to Britain. He is the author "The Best Australian Bush Stories," " The Best Australian Trucking Stories," and "Great Australian Aviation Stories."
