Unforgettable characters emerge from this vintage Herb Wharton collection which ranges from city to bush, from tall tales to amusing parables. There’s Rainbow Jack the opal digger; Dr Roo, who when the dingbats are upon him boxes his own shadow; and stockmen with nicknames such as Wild Duck, Grease Paint and Diamond Jim. Along with campfire yarns and memories drawn from childhood are stories from Herb’s other life in the big city and on the literary trail.

A new wardrobe for Rainbow Jack -- Dreamtime future: Bungo the money god -- Trains: what makes them go -- "Wild pagan Blacks" -- "Where ya' been, mate?" -- Colours -- Boat people -- big trial -- The Munta-gutta -- My favorite dog story -- Cockatoos, oranges and the past -- Waltzing Matilda -- My favorite campfire yarns -- A wasted life?
