An Elephant Charging My Chookhouse by Harry Reade
He probably isn’t really named Harry Reade and his birthday almost certainly isn’t November 17, 1927. But what do you do when that’s what your father calls you and that’s the birth date he puts down on the registration certificate.

You live with it. As Harry Reade lived with his remarkable father, through good times, indifferent times, bad times. Humping their blueys from camps to railway sidings.

You live with the name and the birthday as you live with the ideals and gruff love also handed out. You live through the Depression when there’s only your Dad and you, and occasionally a horse named Billy. 

You live with growing up in a luck-deserted country where food is a luxury. You live with it and you learn to accept it. Even love it.

“An Elephant Charging My Chookhouse” is a celebration of a way of life. Of ideals, of truths and of a rare affection.

It is above all, a unique record of Australia . . .
