Fit as a trout, furnished with a droll take on the sillier aspects of urban life and a clear-eyed view of just how lucky he is, Mike Keighley is the very model of the modern wildlife guide.
Mike’s mate and the book’s co-author Tom Huth is an American journalist silver-tongued enough to entice top travel magazines to consistently pay his passage to hang around with characters like Mike. Tom calls his friend a “go-anywhere, do-anything backcountry guide” .
The whole human caravan seems to have arrived at Mike’s door at some time or another; a diverse retinue populate his campfire stories and now the written version of Mike’s adventures. From abstemious Japanese monks to inebriated Russian film crews, plucky septuagenarians, celebrity make-up artists, demented deckhands and false prophets, all have sought his company.
This is Mike's story - the TRUE tales of an outback bushman.
Loved it uncle mike! Awesome book! - eth
