From his back door the view of his playground stretches beyond the banks of the Warrego River, as far as the eye can see. The fun-loving Herbie learns his culture from both Aboriginal and white worlds: from his tribal elders and from the local townies. For Herbie his Yumba is a village peopled with friends and family, who keep an eye on him and his mates. But theres always escape to the surrounding hopbush plain, a larrikins paradise. Herbies rollicking adventures range from school-age antics to his teenage years as a stockman and, briefly-on into the present and his wry observations in traveling the world as an author.
