User Review - Flag as inappropriate

With a matter of fact style touched with humor, Cole writes about his life in northern Australia working with cows, horses, buffalo, and the many interesting people he meets. While I'm not usually interested in books about horses and cattle, I found that Cole's narration held my interest.

Review: Hell West and Crooked

User Review  - Goodreads

Just re-read this Aussie Classic as we drove through the outback. Such an entertaining narrative on the early cattlemen, buffalo & crocodile hunters that built this region. Should be required reading at all Oz high schools. Read full review
