Based on the life of stockman, drover and adventurer, Charlie Gaunt, and who as an old man in the 1930s wrote of his adventures in the Northern Standard newspaper. Leaving Bendigo for the droving life at the age of fifteen, Charlie two years later signed on with one of Australia's greatest cattle drives -- the Durack family's epic journey from Cooper's Creek, Queensland to the Kimberley, Western Australia. This book includes a fictionalised account of that journey, and of his droving life in Northern Australia as well as fictionalised accounts of violent encounters with indigenous peoples of Northern Australia.
