It it is Cyril's "Western Mail' columns that his contributions to the essence of Australia is to be most appreciated. For many years he encouraged soldiers, bushmen, and bush women, farmers and prospectors to write of their experiences and reminiscences.
A further collection of prospectors' and miners' stories from the old 'Dolly Pot' column with magnificent photos of a way of mining now long past. Collected here are stories of general appeal on the bush, goldfields, farms, stations and towns, folklore, personalities, history, nature, tragedy and humour.
