Book review: Bury Me Vertical




PUBLISHER: Penguin Books Aust

RRP:  $19.95


WHEN it comes to bush yarns and tall tales no one is more qualified to tell them than R. M. Winn.

His new book of ripsnorting Aussie yarns, Bury Me Vertical, contains stories that the author assures will have you snorting beer out of your nose while you read them.

During his time breaking brumbies and boiling the billy, Winn has spent his life listening to stories around the campfires and stations.

That's given him an arsenal of tales that he has compiled into this very funny book on characters of the outback.

From the codger who fed his greyhound his heart medicine to make it go faster at the track or the penny-pinching Scotsman whose last request is to be buried upright, Bury Me Vertical is a must read if you like bush yarns.

This book is full of great characters with tall tales to tell and will have you laughing out loud.
