Where The Outback Drovers Ride brings together two of Simpson's most popular works, Packhorse Drover and Hell, Highwater & Hard Cases, in one bumper edition.
In the first half of the 20th Century, packhorse drovers took on the challenge of moving enormous numbers of cattle many thousands of kilometres across the country, overcoming natural hazards and the tyranny of distance between the far-flung stations and the markets.
This evocative collection of outback folklore, poetry and true stories paint a colourful picture of a variety of adventurers, drifter's, ne'er do wells and reckless characters who thrived in an environment where guts and self-reliance were essential to survival. (back cover)
