"In this enchanting book, a classic of the 'open road' school of writing, Alan Marshall takes his readers on a horse-drawn caravan trip round Victoria during the Second World War.
After writing humorous articles for the AIF News, Alan Marshall had the idea of travelling round the countryside to gather messages from the people of the outback to send to their men and boys on the front. He was excluded from more active service because of a physical handicap caused by infantile paralysis.
With humour and compassion Alan Marshall brings the reader close to the people, places and wildlife of the far-flung regions of Victoria in the 1940s, at the same time describing the joys and setbacks of life on the road."
