Best Australian Yarns is a substantial and definitive collection of factual and fanciful Aussie stories, humour and anecdotes--the result of decades of researching popular Aussie culture and history and yarning to mates and other colourful characters from all parts of Australia and all walks of life. This collection includes tall stories from the bush, reminiscences from the racetrack and shearing shed, railway yarns, stories from the world of show business, Aboriginal legends and humour, digger yarns from both world wars, ghost stories, monsters, bunyips and yowies. and many things you never knew about our amazing history and the characters who made it--the pioneers, heroes, convicts, bushrangers, eccentrics and brave and forgotten men and women 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, strange occurrences or simple everyday humorous events 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 and a simpler lifestyle.

There are 49 yarns in my book starting with The Discovery of Australia then a few taken from my life experiences in the bush and at sea drifting into occasional brief yarns sparked by our history and through the second World War with a few Aboriginal yarns for good measure. In some, the names have been replaced to avoid embarrassment, but all are basically true. My life has been a kaleidoscope of experiences. I became first a beekeeper, then a drover leading to stock dealing and then into cattle and sheep stations in various partnerships. I was a stock and station agent and auctioneer for about 40 years in my own right while running the properties and charter boats, and twice owned motion picture theatres. I reckon I must have married too often to accumulate, as each wife now has at least one house, and or farm while I live in a rental?
