  • Description or summary of the book: A firsthand account of the shearing sheds of the 1950s and 60s.The son of a shearer, Alan Blunt spent his teenage years in the woolsheds of the 1950s and 60s. As his father laboured, Alan would imagine himself opening the batting for Australia or boxing for the world middleweight championship, only to be startled out of his daydream with a cry of- 'Wool away, boy. Wake up!? In this colourful memoir Alan chronicles all the larger-than-life personalities he met- the misfits, romantics, larrikins and psychopaths. From the cooks who ruled the sheds - those solitary, often crazy men who could make or break a team's stay - to the gun shearers and maverick managers. With an irrepressible wit, he captures the voices of the men he worked with and brings to life a golden era of shearing.
