The Australian Yarn

Author: Ron Edwards



This collection of Australian folklore is rare in its authenticity. All the yarns were told to the author first-hand so the voice of the storyteller is strong and clear. These yarn spinners are authentic outback characters ­ cattlemen and stockmen, farmers and drovers, labourers ­ and the stories touch on every aspect of their lives to create a remarkable picture of Australian bush society. Ron Edwards has travelled the outback collecting yarns for many years, and adds to the collection a perceptive essay analysing the structure of the yarn.
