First impression. Size: Quarto. 326 pages. This book is available and ready to be shipped.. The heroic image of a stockman against a backdrop of open space and blue skies is one of Australia's most potent and enduring symbols. This book celebrates the back country pioneers who defied a harsh land and cruel climate to lay the foundations of Australia's primary industries. It is a chequered tale of triumphs and tribulations - of optimism and sheer pluck only too often pitted against unsympathetic administrators and the relentless forces of nature. Evocative illustrations and photographs bring to every page all the vigour and colour of outback life then and now. A thought-provoking chronicle of the nation's pioneers and a nostalgic tribute to our outback heritage, The Romance of the Stockman is a book for all Australians. Quantity Available: 1.
