Out of the desert...

A fresh new kind of book:

Yinti leaves the dry sandhill country to work on a cattle station, a shock transformation shared by a generation. Leaving behind the hunter-gathering lifestyle, the young boy growing to manhood encounters his first motorcar and the mighty Fitzroy River. Still a mischief-maker, he finds out all about horses and houses, station life and town life too. And then Yinti falls in love...

The story of Yinti's contact with white society, sensitively recounted by Pat Lowe, is poignant and humorous. Jimmy Pike, internationally acclaimed Aboriginal artist, illustrates his own adventures with striking and inimitable works of art. Desert Cowboy, from the award-winning Yinti series, will inform and captivate everyone.

Based on true stories from a real life cowboy.
