Publisher's Summary

Join Swampy for a laugh in Aramac as Old Jack attempts to leave the pub; be spooked by the vision of a nun in Kojonup; wrestle with crocs in Nhulunbuy and find out why a very drunk local from Normanton legs it at a pace from the hospital....

Long after the last tale has been told, you'll still hear laughter from the pub, the crash of a drunken donkey falling in a trench, and recall the time...they found this bloke, sitting in the main street at three o'clock in the morning, hammering one of those survey pegs in the ground. So they said, "What the hell are you doing?" And this drunk feller replies, "I'm driving a peg inta the arsehole of the world."

Critic Reviews

"From the ridiculous to the sublime, from the bestial to the bizarre, from the tall to the tender, Bill Marsh holds his readers in the palm of his hand and tickles them with beautifully controlled yarns of childhood..." ( The Advertiser)
