David Hunt: True Girt

 

First there was Girt. Now comes . . . True Girt

In this side-splitting sequel to his best-selling history, David Hunt takes us to the Australian frontier, home to hardy pioneers, gun-slinging bushrangers, directionally challenged explorers and sheep. Lots of sheep.

True Girt introduces Thomas Davey, the hard-drinking Tasmanian governor who invented the Blow My Skull cocktail, infamous LGBTI bushranger Captain Moonlite and Harry, the first camel used in Australian exploration who also shot dead his owner, the explorer John Horrocks.

Author David Hunt is an unusually tall and handsome man who likes writing his own bios for all the books he has written. David is the author of Girt: The Unauthorised History of Australia, which won the 2014 Indie Award for non-fiction and was shortlisted in both the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards and Australian Book Industry Awards. David also has a birthmark that looks like Tasmania, only smaller and not as far south.
