“This book deals with a wide variety of the traditional leather crafts that are still practised today in the Australian bush.  IT covers a wide field, from the kangaroo hide plaited belt and the pouches that are worn on it to stockwhips and saddle repairs.
All the common plaits, braids and lacing techniques are also described as well as instructions for making a wide variety of leather tools.
The book is well illustrated with over 1200 drawings by the author.
Ron Edwards lives in Kuranda, far north Queensland.  The Craft Shop Saddlery in Carins isa family business, but he devotes most of his time to writing books on traditional bush crafts and folklore.  He began practicing leatherwork in 1940 at the age of ten in a small country town ship near Geelong, Victoria, and still makes his own saddles.”
