Cecil Roy Mackaway grew up in the Hunter Valley north of Sydney, touched by a time now passed. Fresh from the influenced of a family with a convict colonial history he witnessed a world, seen from a unique view. His stories and poems bring to life the Australian colonial era and life lived from the Bushman's perspective. Not always politically correct in today's society, he none the less brings a richness and variety to our history and the tale of life as it was lived in the bush in a era now gone. Life in this era was not easy, and often not even comfortable but it did bring with it our unique character, a temper, one that is as Australian as the broad expanses of an endless horizon and the carol of a brilliant night sitting around the camp fire.
