Description - Old Yanconian Daze: Tales of Mateship by Bill "Swampy" Marsh

How Cookie managed to roll the rissoles with one arm was anyone's guess. One particular rumour suggested that he used the 'arm-pit method', which explained why they were shaped like mini cow pats. Award-winning writer Bill 'swampy' Marsh brings schoolyard days alive with affection and dry amusement. His yarns are packed with wild escapades, fights, bursting sexuality, suicide, a hungover pig and the ghost of Sir Samuel McCaughy. Swampy's first collection of short stories about his childhood in a rural town Beckom (Pop. 64) was published in 1988. His stories feature regularly on radio and his songs and plays have been performed across Australia.
