Abstract:

Dating back to the 1830s, the mountain cattlemen heritage is one of the oldest forms of agriculture in Victoria and New South Wales. The cattlemen teach the now seventh generation the intimate secrets of the mountains, rivers and seasons as they tackle rigorous river crossings and mountainous terrain on horseback from a young age.

The sublime photographs in this book document the proud yet threatened tradition of the mountain cattlemen. Features an foreword by Geoff Burrowes , producer of The Man from Snowy River. Introduction by Ian Stapleton, author and outback education pioneer.
