The acute powers of observation and vivid recollection of years spent in the bush that characterised his Camels and the Outback are again delightfully shown by H.M. Barker.

After highlighting the achievements of some of the best known of the early pioneers - Hawden, Tyson, de Satge, Sutherland, Gray, Buchanan, Christison and Cotton - he introduces the pleasures, rigours, vagaries and discomforts of droving as he experienced them.

There is the same richness and variety of incident, the same strange and expert knowledge - this time cattle, sheep, horses and the men whose job it was to get them from place to place - and the same simple yet nonetheless philosophical reflections that were so marked a feature of his earlier book.
