I really enjoyed these stories. They are quite a change from Mr Mitchell's other books. Generally speaking I am not fond of short stories but these just filled the spot when I needed a quick break with a stopping point. Usually it's 'just a few more pages, just a few more pages'. Just be sure you have a big glass of water by your side when you read the Axe. You will get really thirsty!
Terrific short stories which are an interesting read.You can imagine tracing the history of items which mean a lot to a person and have an interesting past.Always accurate accounts of the Australian way of life.
