Description - A Swag of Memories by Brian Taylor

Colourful, evocative and authentic stories of the life of a drover and stockman. What bush life was really like - before the days of the motorbike and helicopters. Brian Taylor has lived in the Queensland bush almost all his life, and knows it well: the plains, the rivers and the mountains from the Barcoo to the sea. And he knows the people that live and work there - the drovers and stockmen, the station hands and those just passing through. In this collection of stories, Brian Taylor tells of some of the characters he has met: there is Dangerous Dan Smith, a hard, self-reliant man who wrote bush poetry; Father Peter, a gentle parish priest and occasional hero, and Charlie Gibson, an Aboriginal stockman utterly at home in his own country.
