Author Mick Joffe has drawn many thousands of characters in his lifetime. The book was written to celebrate the Centenary of Federation. It is a recognition and celebration of many of the district’s oldest generation. With this book we are saying how proud we are of them. They have built the district as we know it. Beside each caricature these great Australians are recorded withsimplicity and pride, in their own words and they reflect the lives and times of many rural towns and people of Australia.
