More About This Title The Jackeroo


This is the story of a jackeroo named Tim Johnson, who works in a team of shearers for quite a long time. He tells his life story after becoming orphaned at a young age. He is adopted at fifteen by an outback grazier. Then at twenty-five, he breaks away from the hell he was enduring, to find himself in this tough world of ours. He meets Molly, and they find true love together for the next forty years. They are confronted by floods, fire, and the loss of their only child, but they prosper in the end. It?s tough in the outback of Australia, but not as tough as some.
