Wilbur Howcroft is one of Australia's popular yarn-spinners.  His bush stories, anecdotes and ballads - many of them published in national magazines - have been delighting readers for twenty years.
This omnibus collection of his work contains some of his best loved stories from earlier books which are not out of print, together with some new, previously unpublished material.  Some of the yarns are old family favourites, handed down from generation to generation; others, whose origin is obscure, have become part of the folklore of many rural districts and outback towns."
