“Akubra is Australian for Hat” By Grenville Turner
Grenville Turner is a long-time AT contributor and one of Australia’s best landscape photographers. For this charming book, a kind of pictorial love letter to the men and women of the outback, he has travelled the length and breadth of the land, interviewing great Aussie characters who all have one thing in common: their loyalty to the humble Akubra. Their stories are fascinating, and Grenville’s images, such as the one pictured here (Stockmen on Mittiebah Station, NT), are every bit as inspiring.
