EXTRACT: I was thirteen when I left school and fifteen when I went into the bush . On me own. Just went in; got a licence and started on me own .. Cuttin ' sleepers . Some blokes cut 'em so clean you could rub your face on 'em . And that's with an axe .. I like the bush . You please yourself what you do . No-one to worry you about where you'll be .
