Books Info:

The Man from Coolibah free pdf The youngest in a family of five, Milton Jones grew up on large properties in the outback. His father was a farm manager and so his early life was a world away from that of city kids. Milton left school in Queensland in his mid teens and moved back to the Northern Territory. Mustering was in his blood and so his first job was as a bullcatcher. Milton Jones is a man of his environment- tough and hardworking with a firm opinion on most things that he isn t afraid to share. The story of how he bought Coolibah Station in 1988 in cash and the way he has built up his country empire is just one element of this book. For him, wrangling crocs, mustering cattle, fighting bush fires and riding rodeo are the norm. Over 1000 km drive away from nearest city, Darwin, his life is lived on horseback, his days ruled by the sunlight. With the help of a seasonal workforce, plus his 42 choppers and a dozen or so horses, his business musters cattle from across the territory. THE MAN FROM COOLIBAH shows us what it is like to live in the never never and brings the Outback to life. For the men and women who live in Milton's world, things are changing but the harshness and beauty of the outback stays the same.
