This autobiography chronicles history, painful politics and social issues in the aftermath of imploding Empires and the rise of Failing States, it is about the life of a mining geologist living and working in far away places as events swirled around him through the 20th century and into the 21st century. In non-retirement the author ran a cattle property in the Upper Hunter, New South Wales. He now lives on the coast north of Sydney.
Cattle dogs are an essential requirement for the cattle industry. Most cattle are amenable to mustering but frequently some animals require more robust treatment to drive them into a fresh paddock or the mustering yards. Despite their size steers can move with great speed and ferocity.
This was no ritual fighting, it would continue for a long time, the biting and kicking with clawed feet created bleeding injuries. At intervals the kangaroos would turn back to back to lick wounds then in a trice it would be on again. Ultimately one , bleeding and limping, would hop away while the victor would sidle up to a quietly eating doe nearby.
