Nugget was up before the bench – again – this time on a charge of stealing a horse. The magistrate asked, ‘Well? What’ve you got to say for yourself today, Nugget?’ Nugget was all outraged innocence. ‘Well, I see’d that horse in the graveyard with no-one ’round, ‘n’ I reckoned his owner must be dead!” A fabulous miscellany of outback observations, yarns, anecdotes, fables, characters, bush ballads and buffoonery.
