Marking the Land: A collection of Australian bush wisdom and humour
This item is out of print.
There is much wisdom and many a laugh to be found in this delightful collection of Australian sayings. The play of humour, practical good sense and irony locates them unmistakeably in this country, and in the particular habits of people in the bush.
Brian Dibble and Jim Evans, both teachers and farmers, have collected bush sayings over many years from newspapers, advertisements, songs, books, colleagues and friends. Beautiful images captured by award winning photographer Richard Woldendorp, perfectly enrich and complement the text.
