When you're a kid, adults often say to you 'your school days are the best of your life'--and you think they must be barking mad! But when you look back, you can see what they meant, because when you are at school you were free of responsibilities--you had adventures, got up to mi...schief, hung out with your mates, made mistakes and, above all, had fun. This collection of more than sixty stories, gathered by Bill 'Swampy' Marsh in his travels across Australia, harks back to a simpler time and perfectly captures the experience of life growing up in the outback, when the days were long and hot, the kids were cheeky but innocent, and adulthood seemed a long way away. Whether you loved school or not, these stories will bring a smile to your face and maybe even a tear to your eye, as students and teachers share their yarns and memories of a time gone by...this little kid, he spun around at me and he snapped, 'Piss off, Miss.' Of course, I immediately replied with, 'Excuse me. In this school we always use our best manners when we talk to teachers and adults. So what should we say, then?' And this little kid, well, he looked up at me all sheepish and he said, 'Well then, Miss, piss off, PLEASE.'
