A good read for all interested in the North and bush life and people.

Harold Godbehear was one of the great characters of the Kimberley and known by all of those in the Kimberley between the 1920s and 1950s. Starting life as a seaman, having escaped office life, he arrived in Fremantle in 1913.

With experience on Minilya Station and droving he was just in time to join the 10th Light Horse, serving in Egypt and Palestine. In 1929 he was appointed manager of Myroodah Station, on the Fitzroy out of Derby.

Thus began his Kimberley life, of which he writes in a very readable style. Men, women, horses, cattle, sheep and dogs, and the Kimberley are the subjects of his humorous but caressing monologue of life in the tropics.
