The Life and Times of Ian Petherick. By Norma Wainwright @ Lee Scott-Virtue.
Ian's story provides an incredible and unique view into how musterers, heli-muster and donkey shooter pilots and the early out-back jackaroo and bull catcher worked with station owners. Ian had dealt with and overcome formidable life changing tragedies such as the loss of this lower right leg at aged twenty three, a helicopter crash into Lake Argyle that nearly took his life and the diagnosis of Parkinson's at the age of 47. This book tracks Ian's life from childhood to the present day. His story reads like an adventure novel and provides an insight into an extraordinary individual. Now available as an electronic Flipbook or PDF. Hard copies will be available early February. Pre-orders for the hard copy book can be made on-line. Orders within Kununurra delivery free.
