What bush life was really like before the days of motorbike and helicopters. Brian Taylor has lived in the Queensland bush almost all his life, and knows it well: the plains, the rivers and the mountains from the Barcoo to the sea. And he knows the people that live and work there the drovers and stockmen, the station hands and those just passing through. In this collection of stories, Brian Taylor tells stories of some of the characters he has met: amongst many there is Dangerous Dan Smith, a hard, self-reliant man who wrote bush poetry; Father Peter, a gentle parish priest and occasional hero, and Charlie Gibson, an Aboriginal stockman utterly at home in his own country. A Swag of Memories was previously published as The Moonlight Stallion, and The Brumby Mare.
