Big Mobs: The Story of Australian Cattlemen
Previously overshadowed in the public imagination by notions of American cowboys and the wild west, Big Mobs gives Australian stockmen the place they so richly deserve in pastoral and Australian history. From the lonely months on a long cattle drive to the boots they wore and the places they lived, this comprehensive work provides a fascinating insight into a unique way of life.
