Great Aussie Yarns

New or Used: $23.70
For the first time, two classics of Australian humour are brought together in a single irresistible volume. In Australian Beer Yarns, Peter Lalor presents a collection of beer-inspired tall tales and trivia. Why is one of our prime ministers in the Guinness Book of Records? How did beer save one lucky drinker from death by snakebite? Which state banned barmaids until 1967? Funny, frank and fascinating, these stories are sure to go down nicely with a glass of your favourite brew. In Classic Bush Yarns, Warren Fahey celebrates the great Australian tradition of humorous tale-telling. In yarns about wily swagmen, larrikin city-slickers, laconic soldiers, iron-backed bush women, stoic convicts and foolhardy gold-diggers, Australia's folktale tradition is shown at its colourful, iconoclastic best.
