“In Once There was a Bagman, Tom Ronan gives us a vivid and colourful account of the years in which he gathered the background for such works as the Commonwealth Jubilee Prize-winning novel Vision Splendid, his Moleskin Midas and many other stories.
He was twenty years old when he left the West Coast Pearling fleets ( a phases of life recorded in the earlier book of memoirs, Packhorse and Pearling Boat) to return to the Northern Territory, scene of many of his boyhood wanderings.”
