Aussie Outback Yarns

Rated 3.00/5 based on 1 reviews
A collection of short stories gathered around the vast and unique Australian Outback during the author's travels over the last few years.
Reflecting typical Aussie humor they are mostly factual although some, doubtless, have been "stretched" a little in the telling years, but are in the tradition of fireside yarns of Australia and overseas, but whatever their origins they make for great reading! More

Review by: Cassandra Joseph on April 10, 2012 :
Cute stories about life in the Outback. Having traveled to Australia 3 times and love the country and people the way I do, I love to read whatever I can get my hands on about Australia. These were not a disappointment. Great characters and stories, although some did seem to just end without any closure.
