Bush Tucker Man: Tarnished Heroes: Epic Stories of Bush Survival
The author introduces us to some 'tarnished' Australian heroes weaving into their fascinating stories, his own wide knowledge and first-hand experiences of the Australian bush. Meet the legend of the rainforest, the young brothers who conquered the Cape York Peninsula, Queensland's so-called 'Last of the Bushrangers', the king of cattle duffers, and ponder the latest revelations about the mysterious white colonists of central Australia. Colour and black-and-white illustrations.Perhaps one of the reasons some of our heroes went relatively unrecognised was that, with every act of courage and daring, there always seemed to be a touch of scandal and disrepute - instances where the so-called larrikin spirit went a touch too far and the need to survive meant bending the rules. That's how they became our tarnished heroes.In his inimitable style, Bush Tucker Man Les Hiddins introduces us to some of them, weaving into their fascinating stories his own wide knowledge and first-hand experiences of the Australian bush.
