Product description

Product Description

If you put a shilling on the bar for a beer, which cost 8 pence, then your change might be a story of the outback.
A Shilling on the Bar is a collection of short stories that have been collected by Trododniak Weatherness, Senior Magistrate as he travelled his circuit in far North Queensland. The 16 stories are titled by the character's name and each carries an introductory photo of the era sourced from the John Oxley Library, State Library of Queensland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and Clever 28 July 2015
By Jackie Ryan - Published on
The style of writing is unique and clever. Some of the sentences made me burst out laughing. I bought the book while on vacation in Queensland and hoped it would hold my interest. It's one I would recommend over and over again and I will buy more by this author. I laughed and laughed and now my husband is doing the same.
