Off the Sheep's Back
"Pioneer, settler, bushman, master shearer - Bill Richard's story is a eulogy to a lifestyle that has now all but disappeared but which remains an important part of our heritage. Raised on the frontier, when farming meant first clearing acres of dense bush, he faced daily dangers with quiet determination and strength. ... At times the isolation was oppresive and he yearned to escape its confines ... Despite an injured wrist he developed a shearing technique that involved using his legs to hold the sheep. With this, he took on the country, setting numerous records and becoming a household name among the shearing fraternity. Off the Sheep's Back is his story of that early struggle for survival."--Back cover.
