Great Australian Stories free pdf Stories from outback towns and pubs across this wide brown land gathered by Bill 'Swampy' Marsh - now available in an all-new format. the people you'll meet will touch your heart as Swampy brings to life all the drama and delight of life in outback Australia. there's the story of Frederick Aloysius Millard, the only dog ever to become a member of a Citizens Club in Australia, thanks to the vote of a woman who was sure she'd been introduced to this 'eccentric' man twenty years back- the man who refused to go to the doctor after being shot, because he'd been hit in a very unfortunate spot ...which made it obvious he'd been shot while running away- the unfortunate bloke who tried to blow a snake out of the dunny but ended up nearly taking himself out of existence ...if there's a good story out there, Swampy's captured it for this book. Long after the last tale has been told, you'll still hear laughter from the pub, the crash of a drunken donkey falling in a trench and recall the time ...they found this bloke, sitting in the main street at 3 o'clock in the morning, hammering one of those survey pegs in the ground. So they said, 'What the hell are you doing?' And this drunk feller replies, 'I'm driving a peg inta the arsehole of the world.' Award-winning writer Bill 'Swampy' Marsh collects yarns that get us in, hook, line and sinker. He gives us back our childhood and shares those precious memories of an Australia that's passing into legend.
