The Ballad of The Fat Bushranger
Written by D'Arcy Niland, The Ballad of The Fat Bushranger is a collection of funny short stories.
First published in 1961, Niland humped a swag over most areas of Australia and collected the characters he has polished and presented in this edition.
15 stories that weave the ridiculous with the witty until the reader is left giggling and snorting through each page.
The fat bushranger of the title is too fat to even sit on a horse, a practical joker who entered his legs in a beauty contest- and won... these are all simple stories that are vastly complicated with the talent Niland wended on each subject.
Hunt it down and buy it, it's worthy in any house for the pleasure it will give.
