'I tell you, you meet some strange characters in the game'...
Boasting the biggest beats in the world - some as large as France - Australia's outback police have seen it all: natural disasters, incredible acts of selflessness, unspeakable crimes and daring rescues, to name just a few.
And they've met some unforgettable characters along the way: from the murderer who suffered his victims' bodies down wombat holes; to the policeman who arrested his own wife; to the prisoner who risked his life to rescue his own captor from certain death.
Master storyteller Bill ' Swampy' Marsh has travelled the length and breadth of the country to gather their tales of adventure and misadventure, drama and mayhem, larrikinism and laughter, to create this memorable collection of real-life stories about those on the frontline in the heart of Australia
