… a grand adventure, and, I suppose, cannot be repeated ever. Times have taken such adventure away. Australian Senator, Bob Brown, Greens Party leader
… brilliant, a spell binding read… captured the feel of our country and our people. His stories are gripping and entertaining… Ros Jones, Meneling Station, Northern Territory
A young Texan motivated by the impending sale of the family ranch, immigrates to Australia to make a new life for himself where he is taken under the wing of the most outrageous character in the Northern Territory as they pursue the dangerous profession of bull catching, capturing wild bulls and buffalos on the open range, not unlike Texas immediately after the civil war. Only the author, in bare feet and worn out cutoffs, uses Toyotas instead of horses and throws them down by the tail instead of roping them.
An amazing one of a kind adventure spiced with danger, unique characters, humor, and a deep empathy for the wild outback of Australia.
