“(the Winston District) is country which is subject to severe fluctuations of fortune, a land which can humble people very quickly, but also a place which can be generous to those who start with little else but skill and tenacity. It is real Australia – it inspired Banjo Paterson to write Waltzing Matilda, it lifted QANTAS into the air, it underwrote the Australian legend. It is a land which has made so much history. This book honours that history.” (publisher’s blurb) This copy inscribed by the authors ‘to Ray’.
