Description 

For almost a century, droving large mobs of cattle overland on horseback was essential to move herds from the Territory’s inland to far-distant markets. However by the late 1960s, droving was almost entirely displaced by road train transport. Not long after, mythology gave rise to yarns about droving and drovers themselves. Drawing on his own droving experience, Roger will describe his encounters with well-known outback identities and a way of life that will never be repeated.
