Bill 'Swampy' Marsh
A collection of the funniest yarns and most colourful characters from the bestselling 'Great Australian Stories' series from beloved storyteller Bill 'Swampy' Marsh. The term 'Bible bashing' took on new meaning in our household. Not so much for its reading, though God certainly remained high on Mum's spiritual priorities, but more for its treatment of bunions, chilblains, corns, etc. Mum suffered from bunions until she started bashing them with the heavy family Bible, believing the Lord's weight behind the Lord's word could move anything from mountains to bunions. Bill 'Swampy' Marsh has spent more than twenty years travelling to every corner of Australia, talking to people from all walks of life, collecting their wild, wonderful and whacky stories More Great Australian Outback Yarns includes many of the most memorable tales from Swampy's collections. The colourful characters in these pages capture the generosity, humour and laconic quality that bring to life the heart and soul of outback Australia
