I tell you, you meet some strange characters in this game....
Boasting the biggest beats in the world - some as large as France - Australia's outback police have seen it all: natural disasters, incredible acts of selflessness, unspeakable crimes and daring rescues, just to name a few. And they've met some unforgettable characters along the way: from the murderer who stuffed his victims' bodies down wombat holes to the policeman who arrested his own wife to the prisoner who risked his life to rescue his own captor from certain death.
Master storyteller Bill 'Swampy' Marsh has travelled the length and breadth of the country to gather their tales of adventure and misadventure, drama and mayhem, and larrikinism and laughter, to create this memorable collection of real life stories about those on the frontline in the heart of Australia.
I'd love to meet Swampy. He reads so comfortably as though he just chatting.
Great stories of a wonderful country and fascinating lives. It's like spending time with Henry Lawson.
