This is an auction for ROUGHNECKS, ROLLING STONES & ROUSEABOUTS by John A Lee.

From the dust jacket:

"For a time in the late 1930s John A Lee was on the air every Sunday night talking about the swagger days in New Zealand and related subjects. His broadcasts proved tremendously popular and when he asked listeners to contribute their own experiences of swagging and swagmen the letters simply poured in. This book, in part, is a distillation of those broadcasts and listeners’ letters. But it goes much further than that. In Jack Lee’s expert hands we get something approaching a full survey of a fascinating side of our country’s story, covering at road level, as it were, the good and the bad times from the 1860s onwards. Times, at any rate, characterised by the three R’s of the road – the Roughnecks, Rolling Stones and Rouseabouts . . . For good measure the publishers have added a full array of illustrations culled from contemporary sources, as well as a lively anthology of swagger and outback items, ranging from some little-known station ballads to first-hand descriptions of a ‘hatter’ and of experiences on the swag.”
