Outback books

Children's Book The Adventures of Whitey and Blackie by John Morrison

This beautifully illustrated children's book by John Morrison is about the enduring friendship between two different animals that live in the great Australian outback.
This book, the first of a series of adventures, describes life on a cattle station, and introduces many other animals and birds of the outback, including the discovery of the mythical “Bunyip”.
Whitey, the “hero” of the story is based on a real life legendary white bull associated with the famous stockman, pioneer and cattle duffer, Harry Readford, known in Australian folklore as “Captain Starlight”.
