In Working with the Curlew Trevor Robinson shares his enthusiasm and joy for his work as a shepherd on the moor at Great Whernside in Yorkshire and later as a farmhand near Leominster in Hereford: "A lovely environment, very busy and hard work with no lorries, no electric motors, no tractors, just nature's own sounds." He celebrates the intricate details of traditional farm life: selling rabbits at tuppence each, the village hop, sheep shearing, lambing, shire horses, haymaking, the warm welcome taste of tea on a snow-bound moor, muck spreading, cheese and bread making, trout-tickling, and killing the pig, a quiet job well done. During one severe Yorkshire winter six hundred sheep were lost, and he had to leave the job he loved, 'the call of the curlew was still over two months away, when it came I was not there to hear it'. His new job in Herefordshire brought different skills: hedge laying, ploughing matches, haymaking, chain harrowing and crop rotation, and inevitably, the arrival of tractor and combine harvester.

Part two of Curlew Enigma. With a cache of stolen gold bars Buster McDonald sets out to build on the start he's been given by the exploits of the Elijah Henry gang. Just as his plans seem to augur well, he's faced with the hard decision whether to intervene to prevent a massacre by the local Aboriginal tribe of an arrogant neighbour who has provoked the attack. To save the whites he could place his relationship with the tribe in jeopardy. But no setback will daunt his quest to build an empire for his growing family as he faces drought, financial recession and violence. Along the way he sometimes resorts to the bushranging past he's been attempting to leave behind, as he treads a fine line between respectability and notoriety.
