John Heffernan (b.1949) lives on a farm. He’s written for children of all ages: from picture books on. His first book, Spud, was about a blue heeler cattle dog and won several literary awards. Much of his writing is inspired by his experiences living close to the land.
Finding the books
Neither are particularly easy to find, and certainly outside Australia, they’re expensive.
