The stor​​ies in this book are about real people​, and hail from back in days gone by. These were good friends and comrades​ who stuck together; they came from all walks of life, worked hard, drank hard​ - and fought at the drop of a hat​.
They toiled in the outback of Australia on construction jobs ​building road​s and railways, and dams​ and harbours for the iron ore ​industry; ​they laboured ​​in gold and copper mines, as stockmen on ​giant cattle stations, ​as fishermen around the north coast and ​in many other professions, some legal and some otherwise​.
Not your average law-abiding and God-fearing citizens, these were real Aussies of the outback​.
The stor​ies have been ​fictionalised to protect those still in the land of the living.

Raymond D. Clements was born into a large family in a goldmining town in Central Queensland, Australia, after the end of the Second World War. He grew up with miners, stockman, drovers, and took to the road early in his life. Left school at 13 years and worked and taught himself to do all kinds of jobs with skill; using explosives, blast hole drilling, earthmoving machinery, underground mining, mustering wild cattle, sheep droving, horsebreaking, cattle fencing and catching wild bulls with a rope of a Toyota Jeep. Conscripted for National service, sent to war in Vietnam as a Forward Scout in the Australian army. Came back a changed man, but still had the wanderlust and spirit of travel and adventure. Worked and traveled far and wide across the outback of Australia; in later years went backpacking around the world on many trips. Did a bungy jump in Chiangmai, Northern Thailand, at the age of 59. Later married a young Thai woman 30 years younger and is now happily retired with his young wife and baby daughter. He says, 'Life is what you make it!'
