Bestselling author

From the bestselling author of 'The Best Australian Trucking Stories' and 'The Best Australian Bush Stories'.

The Best Australian Yarns and Other True Stories is a substantial and definitive work collected from memory, mates, word of mouth and decades of researching popular Aussie culture and history. This collection includes tall stories from the bush, railway yarns, stories from the world of show business, Aboriginal legends, digger yarns from both world wars, ghost stories, monsters, bunyips, yowies and many things you never knew about our amazing history as well as the characters who made it ? and whose fascinating lives and achievements created the Aussie spirit that we all love. While the stories range from poignant to hilarious many simply describe unusual coincidences and strange occurrences with a refreshing understatement that vividly evokes a vanishing Australia where looking for a good laugh was a key component of a cheekier national character.
