Bloody Agents!

If you've ever had anything to do with bloody agents you'll either find people you know in this book or know others exactly like them - you might even be in there yourself! You will meet agents and graziers, drovers and buyers, as well as read how motor cars stood up in the conditions and how Finance was arranged. There's even a chapter about a dog! While the grammar may not be textbook English, it's a very readable yarn in understandable language about things that really happened to real people ...and you're guaranteed to find a laugh in it somewhere.

About the Author

John Gilfoyle had 35 years with Elders as a Stock & Station Agent. His career took him from Brisbane to Charleville, Richmond, Quilpie, Hughenden, back to Richmond, then to Townsville, Brisbane and Roma. He was involved in all aspects of company activities but especially Livestock, Insurance and Real Estate. These days he is better known as the market reporter at Roma Saleyards and as a writer for Blue's Country Magazine. This is his first book ... let's hope it's not the last!


"I absolutely loved it. I read it on a flight to Taiwan, wasn't able to contain myself and felt compelled to share it with other passengers. The whole yarn just flooded me with delightful memories - people, places, country, landscapes, roads, cars, smells, cattle, everything." Jack Gleeson, Adelaide. "J.G. knows how to tell a story. His knockabout style and intimate knowledge of the bush enables him to relate to the people and recount the funny incidents that happened during his time as a stock and station agent in an industry brimming with characters. This book is a beauty; you'll enjoy it!" John Robbins, Bribie Island.
