An account of one man's odyssey from 1945 to the '80s, through the far-flung stock camps of the East Kimberley, Queensland's Gulf country, South Australia's North East, the Wiluna desert fringe and ultimately from the Pilbara to the closely settled area of Bindoon, near Perth.

Paterson records his memories of the work, the fun, the fauna, some politics, the encroachment of technology and some marvellous but largely unsung people met along the way.

Perched on the Rails is a rattling good read, a hidden gem and one that you will be pleased to have in your library.
