Hunter. Worker. Legend. The untold story of the dog's role in building our nation.
Everyone knows Australia rode on the sheep's back. But do they know just how much those sheep depended on the dog? Working dogs made a huge contribution tothe success of the Australian wool and beef industries.
Indeed, they provided the means to feed a starving colony; guard fledgling colonial agricultural enterprises; and extend a sheep and beef industry that fed the world. Never has Australia had a workforce that asked for so little and yet produced so much.
The Dogs That Made Australia is a vividand meticulously researched history of Australia told through the story of the dingo, the dogs that were imported and bred here, and the humans who loved, feared and worked them.
