Horseshoes and Fences
What doesn’t destroy you, it makes you stronger.
Danger, strength, community, physicality, failure, success are all ways to describe what takes place in the bush and outback.
What matters most is what is done in each of these situations to build the character of the country person, regardless of their chosen path.
In this book are several scenarios of what has happened in the past. We use history to tell us what has occurred, so that we may avoid those results the next time when faced with the same situation.
Sometimes there are disastrous results to a situation and sometimes there are positive results and sometimes it may have a funny side too.
There are so many stories out there, particularly when the author has been involeved in farming for much of his life.
He was a third generation Aussie farmer.
Most of the short stories have been handed down over the ages, are just now being put to print and loosely follow the path of farming since the early 1800’s.
