“Here is the essence of Australian folk humour as it has been collected by the leading folklorist Bill Wannan. Through yarns, tall tales, legends and ballads, we meet the great Australian characters: shearers, stockmen, whingers and publications, swagmen and bush cooks – all introduced with uproarious humour.
These colourful characters, who first appeared in Bill Wannan’s Tales from Back O’ Burke and Bullockies, Beauts and Bandicoots, are now brought together in this omnibus edition.”
