Bronco Harry's Last Ride
Now a second volume of Bush Ballads and Yarns in the same style, has been compiled by Jack – Bronco Harry’s Last Ride.
The Australian bushman’s sense of humour is legendary: dry, laconic and with a good bite. Jack Drake is one of Australia’s best writers and reciters of this comic bush verse. But he also has a great sense of the farcical and the crazy tall story. These are more ballads and yarns you’ll be wanting to recite in the evenings on the verandah.
