For the first time this book brings a selection of Lawson's stories together in their natural sequences: a bush sequence, then a series of sequences centred on the characters of Steelman, Mitchell, Dave Regan and Joe Wilson. It ends with the dominating figure of Lawson's most lovable character, the Giraffe. An introductory story sets the tone and mood of each of the four main sequences. In all, the six sequences present twenty-four stories to form a selection that exhibits Lawson's literary skill at its best. Each of the central characters emerges as an expansion of some aspect.
