Originally published in 1934, Buffaloes is a memoir of the exploits of two ex-Gallipoli veterans who, unable to return to an ordinary life at home, journeyed north to procure buffalo hides from the wetlands and plains of what is now Kakadu National Park. This is a laconic and engaging story of ‘mad adventure’, mateship and survival that captures the high action and extreme dangers of shooting buffalo from horseback.
