Beloved Aussie writer pens hat tip to nation’s hero volunteers
Legendary writer, Bill ‘Swampy’ Marsh has penned a tribute to some of Australia’s fiercest heroes in his latest book.
The collection of stories retells inspiring and comical tales from our rural fire crews in what Swampy calls a “celebration of human spirit”.
“Some of the situations those people got in, I’d be terribly afraid of going into,” he told Sofie Formica. “And they’re volunteers!”
“Everybody’s kind of got a story and I try and give everybody a little bit of a voice.”
