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 this third collection of true tales, animals rather than people take centre stage – with a tip of the hat to Henry Lawson's much-loved story 'The Loaded Dog'. Meet a ute full of wayward working dogs, a pesky bush turkey determined to outsmart its landlady, a rogue circus elephant staking a claim on the road and an orphan pig with a message for the world.
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.
