No Sundays in the Bush by Tom Carter

1987 trade size paperback published by Lothian.  Very good condition.  Clean and solidly bound.  131 pages.
Tom Carter, a young Englishman with a taste for adventure and a passion for ornithology, stepped ashore at Carnarvon, Western Australia in 1887 to begin work for property owners in this hot frontier district of a pioneering state.  he was a 'new chum', one of many Englishman who sought experience and fortune in the rough outdoor ife of the jackeroo.
His story is rich with the adventures and incidents of his two years in the bush, and full of lively humour.  Whether he is taking sheep south on a drive of epic length and hardship, well sinking, hunting, shearing or boundary riding his observant eye and natural story telling skill give us all the detail and excitement of the experience.
