The Australian woolshed is steeped in history and folklore. These buildings symbolise the harshness of the land and are a testament to farmers' ingenuity and resourcefulness.
From Andrew Chapman, the bestselling author of Woolsheds, comes a stunning new photographic book, Around The Sheds, which explores the world of the woolsheds across Australia - the shearers, the roustabouts, the dogs, the cooks, the dunnies and, of course, the sheds themselves.
While much has changed since white settlement and the early days of the woolshed, much has stayed the same, and the characters you'll meet on this visual journey share a common link: an abiding passion for the wool industry and the land that sustains it.
