              The people you'll meet will touch your heart as Swampy brings to life all the drama and delight of life in outback Australia. There's the story of Frederick Aloysius Millard, the only dog ever to become a member of a Citizens Club in Australia, thanks to the vote of a woman who w...as sure she'd been introduced to this 'eccentric' man twenty years back; the man who refused to go to the doctor after being shot, because he'd been hit in a very unfortunate spot ...which made it obvious he'd been shot while running away; the unfortunate bloke who tried to blow a snake out of the dunny but ended up nearly taking himself out of existence ...if there's a good story out there, Swampy's captured it for this book. Long after the last tale has been told, you'll still hear laughter from the pub, the crash of a drunken donkey falling in a trench and recall the time ...they found this bloke, sitting in the main street at 3 o'clock in the morning, hammering one of those survey pegs in the ground. So they said, 'What the hell are you doing?' And this drunk feller replies, 'I'm driving a peg inta the arsehole of the world.' Award-winning writer Bill 'Swampy' Marsh collects yarns that get us in, hook, line and sinker. He gives us back our childhood and shares those precious memories of an Australia that's passing into legend.

              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.'

              Yarns and memories that capture the experience of policing in the bush, gathered by the inimitable Bill 'Swampy' Marsh, bestselling author of GREAT AUSTRALIAN FLYING DOCTOR STORIES and GREAT AUSTRALIAN CWA STORIES. 'I tell you, you meet some strange characters in this game ...' B...oasting the biggest beats in the world - some as large as France - Australia's outback police have seen it all: natural disasters, incredible acts of selflessness, unspeakable crimes and daring rescues, just to name a few. And they've met some unforgettable characters along the way: from the murderer who stuffed his victims' bodies down wombat holes; to the policeman who arrested his own wife; to the prisoner who risked his life to rescue his own captor from certain death. Master storyteller Bill 'Swampy' Marsh has travelled the length and breadth of the country to gather their tales of adventure and misadventure, drama and mayhem, and larrikinism and laughter, to create this memorable collection of real-life stories about those on the front-line in the heart of Australia.
