A colorful and touching tale that anyone who has ever loved a grandparent, or felt connected to family history, will lap up and let sit with them forever. This is the sort of yarn that can be enjoyed alone and also a great one to share with the family.
"Robbie spent the evening in rapt enchantment listening to tales of stagecoaches and six black horses in hand. The boy laughed when told of bushrangers and villains, and how grandpa had routed all those that stood in the way of his coach.
The stories took Robbie aboard and he moved about the front step as though he was on the swaying seat 'up front' with his grandpa driving, cracking a bull whip with a tail as long as a serpent."
Climb aboard the coach to be captivated as well by one of Peter Rake's great short stories.
