Illustrator and Author: Barry Crump
This is Crump's second book.The main character is Sam Cash,an engaging, yarn-spinning vagabond,who takes young Jack Lilburn under his journey.The pair go from one job to another - timber-felling, horse-breaking,fencing,mustering,farming - but of equal importance to the story are the tall tales and unusual qualities of Sam Cash himself,rebel,humorist and jack-of-all-trades. Barry Crump writes once again of back-country life as he knows it,of men who can turn their hands to any job, and he proves that A Good Keen Man was only a foretaste of the humour and story-telling of which he is capable. Hang on a Minute Mate is again illustrated by Dennis Turner.It seems certain to establish new sales records fr New Zealand writing.
