Sick Sheep Gully. Nightcap. Tittybong. Believe it or not, these are all true blue Aussie places. But how did they get such quirky monickers? All is revealed in YORKEY'S KNOB, a light-hearted romp through some of our more bizarre localities and the perfect gift this Christmas. From the many delightful names derived from indigenous words (Coober Pedy, for example, is said to mean 'white man down hole') to the optimistic (Arcadia), the pessimistic (Mount Despair) and the downright sniggerworthy (Burrumbuttock, anyone?), this book is chock-full of fascinating snippets of Australian history and trivia - and quite a few tall tales. YORKEY'S KNOB: BIGGER THAN MOBY'S DICK!
