Rough Diamonds & Real GemsBook - 2007
This inspiring collection features nine captivating stories about ordinary bush men and women who lead extraordinary lives. There's the island cattleman who swims his herd past toothy sharks and beady-eyed crocs; the pineapple grower who builds a stone church for his community; the timber worker who becomes a champion woodchopper; and a dairywoman who, at eighty-eight, is still rescuing birthing cows from the brink of death. Rhyll's effortless, larrikin style will have you laughing out loud one minute, and on the edge of your seat the next. It's impossible not to be moved by the stories of these real-life heroes.
