Up a Hollow Log

Author(s): R.M. Winn


Master storyteller Ryle Winn learnt his craft in the backblocks, experimented with it in the public bar and honed it in between musters and sale yards. In Ryle's third collection of true tales, read how ordinary situations can turn into mayhem at the drop of a hat. Meet a ute-load of wayward working dogs, a horse and rider that would do The Man from Snowy River proud and an opportunistic elephant outwitting a truck driver. And if that's not enough, there's always the wedding anniversary shared with a couple of bogged cows two hundred metres from dry land ...You'll bust a gut laughing, you'll be left incredulous, you might even shed a tear or two. But most of all, you'll be glad you took the time to join Ryle Winn in celebrating man's best friend - and other creatures from the bush and beyond. Praise for Ryle Winn's stories: 'Ryle Winn has an engaging, racy style. Not many have the ability to record a yarn the way it was told and lose nothing in the translation, or even make it better.' Colin Thiele 'This book is a lot like sitting around a campfire and, listening to a bush character recount tales of life on the land.' South Coast Register
