AUSTRALIAN SHEEP AND WOOL HANDBOOK
Cottle, D. J. edited by
ISBN: 0909605602
Inkata Press Melbourne 1991 First Edition
 Hardcover Laminated cover boards, a near fine copy. The sheep and wool industry is one of the most economically important industries in Australia. Even so, this is the first publication to have brought together and presented the principles upon which all the various activities in the industry are based. The implications of these principles and their practical applications are described in detail. All of the contributing authors are influential in the sheep and wool industry by virtue of the positions they hold in Departments of Agriculture, universities and commercial organisations. The value and comprehensive nature of this book are due to their combined knowledge and experience. For undergraduate and postgraduate students studying sheep production this book is a must, and it is also an essential reference for graziers and those involved in any section of the sheep and wool industry.; 270 x 190mm; x, 499 pages Near Fine

Abacus, London, 1997. Reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. Following his acclaimed book about football in the north-east,THE FAR CORNER, Harry Pearson vowed that his next project would not involve hanging around outdoors on days so cold that itinerant dogs had to be detached from lamp-posts by firemen. It would be about the summer: specifically, about a summer of shows and fairs in the north of England. Encompassing such diverse talents as fell-running, tupperware-boxing and rabbit fancying (literally), and containing many more jokes about goats than is legal in the Isle of Man, Racing Pigs and Giant Marrows is without doubt the only book in existence to explain the design faults of earwigs and expose English farmers' fondness for transvestism. Warm, wise and very funny, it confirms increasing suspicions that Harry Pearson is really quite good. Secondhand copy with no damage to describe. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 240 pages.

An Outback Life
Groves, Mary
ISBN: 9781742377056
Allen & Unwin, Australia, 2011. First Edition
 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Very Good/. First Edition. 319 pages. Covers have light creasing. Spine is uncreased. Pages are lightly tanned. All I could think of as my heart thumped in my chest and the rumble of 900 stampeding buffalo rocked my vehicle was, 'Strewth! Am I in trouble now!' In AN OUTBACK LIFE, Mary Groves describes the heart-breaking isolation, the hard work and the rises and falls in her family fortunes as they battle to survive in the Top End. Mary was just 14 when her family moved to the Northern Territory from Melbourne. In her early 20s, she met Joe Groves - a cattleman, horse breaker, drover and rodeo rider. Mary and Joe fell in love and raised four children while leading an exciting and challenging life on an array of cattle stations. During her 40 years in the outback, Mary faced death, disaster and disappointments with remarkable resilience and stoicism. She learned to operate helicopters, cattle trucks and anything else it took to help keep her family afloat, proving that if you want something badly enough you need tenacity, perseverance and - most importantly - a sense of humour. An earthy tale of love, hope, loss and survival in the outback, Mary tells her story at a lively pace, with one entertaining yarn after another. Quantity Available: 1.
