Chap Book.


My chap book, The Country Gate, has now been released to selected shops. This anthology has stories and poems inspired by Torrens Creek, Queensland, its wildlife and some social 'happenings' around the area. I compiled it to give our many tourists some idea of what makes people love living in the outback, despite the lack of town comforts and entertainments. Here we make our own entertainment.
The gate on the cover was entry into one of the remote properties here, it has since been changed to another farmers' enigma - the gap - and is even more difficult to open.
The poem, The Country Gate, is one of a series I have written about Australian icons. I chose to use it on as the cover piece because it seems to typify the contrary ruggedness of bush characters.
The book sells for A$10.00, plus postage and handling, and may be ordered directly from this site.
