In this impressive collection, Ryle Winn introduces eight real-life heroes, each with an extraordinary tale to tell. We meet a fencing contractor who proves you can't judge a book by its cover; two octogenarian sisters with a tragic family secret; a racing enthusiast and horse-breeder who gets the shock of his life; and a gutsy timberman who has sidestepped his date with the devil on more than one occasion.

Ryle's unforgettable stories are moving and uplifting, and proof that the best yarns really are from the heart.

Praise for Rough Diamonds & Real Gems

'Ryle Winn has an engaging, racy style. Not many have the ability to record a yarn the way it was told and lose nothing in the translation, or even make it better.' Colin Thiele

'Winn and his characters speak in their own bush voices. This makes for some terrific and colourful reading.' Weekly Times

'This book is a lot like sitting around a campfire and listening to a bush character recount tales of life on the land.' South Coast Register
