A racy narrative of W A Winter-Irving's early life in the Victorian countryside and on the huge cattle and sheep properties in Queensland.
With affectionate detail, Winter-Irving evokes the feeling of the 1920s and 1930s, a time towards the end of Australia's pastoral era, with its splendid old homes, go-for-broke land deals and individualistic men and women.
W A Winter-Irving was a fourth-generation Australian of Scottish descent. At one time, his family were the second-largest pastoral holders in Victoria.
