Australia's Best Unknown Stories free pdf From Jim Haynes, one of our most successful and prolific Australiana 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 eccentric stories that capture the heart of the Australian spirit.
