There is much wisdom and many a laugh to be found in this delightful collection of Australian sayings. The play of humour, practical good sense and irony locates them unmistakably in this country, and in the particular habits of mind of people in the bush. Brian Dibble and Jim Evans, both of them teachers and farmers, have collected bush sayings over many years and from all over the place - from newspapers, advertisements, songs, books, colleagues and friends, and just talking with people. And Richard Woldendorp's spare, evocative photographs perfectly enrich and complement the text.
