Alfred Hermann Traeger was the kind of person whose life story is best told as a Fireside yarn. This book is not an attempt to be a definitive biography of him, but it is meant to be a record of some of the things he did in life.

Traeger discovered the meaning of life when travelling along lonely outback tracks. He loved the smell of gum trees on the banks of the meandering bush creeks. He found a strange happiness in giving what he called 'a big surprise' to isolated families in the Never Never who were completely cut off from the rest of the world in Australia's outback.

This is the story about the man who gave a voice to the bush with the invention of the miracle pedal radio and enabled John Flynn to create a 'mantle of safety' for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
