Gunnedah Hero is a classic YA adventure story. Gunny Danson has a bequest, the manuscript written by Smokey Danson who lived at the time of the great drought in Australia. At the age of 14, Smokey took the herd from the station on a trek to find pasture and water to keep them alive until the drought ends. Gunny has a school assignment to write on the drought, so the book is of great interest to him. He avidly follows Smokey's adventures, the people he meets, both good and bad, the mystery he resolves, the friends he makes, the headlines which say he is a Gunnedah Hero. Meanwhile, Gunny has his own worries about the future of the station...

The story is written with verve and energy, the reader is drawn into the lives of the people who lived through those drought-ridden times and is an enjoyable read for any age.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable easy read 8 Jan. 2013

Gunneday Hero was an enjoyable read, could read the whole book in one sitting as there was a desire to know what happened each day in the life of Gunnie. Shame the story didn't go further, would have like to read more of the great-grandfather's life and also into the current period but I guess that is a sign of a good book, I wanted more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experience Australia's Outback in the Wonderful Story - J. Rogers, Author 5 July 2013
By J.E. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Smokey Danson was a legend in his own time. Known as the Gunnedah Hero, Smokey was given the impressive moniker as a young boy while driving a herd of cattle up the long `paddock,' in the early 1900s.
Clancy Tucker deftly tells the tale of the Gunnedah Hero through the eyes of another young boy living in the present day. Gunnedah `Gunnie' Danson is the 14 yr old great great grandson of Smokey Danson. Gunnie has been given a school assignment to write about drought and its effect on farmers and local economy. Returning home from school one day, he is given a gift from his Grandfather. The gift is a manuscript and an envelope, which cannot be opened until Gunnie reads the adventure that his great-great-grandfather had back in 1911 during the Australian drought.
Join Gunnie as reads the story and travels with his great-great-Grandfather up the long paddock with his herd of cattle. You will learn how Smokey managed to survive the wilderness while taking care of the cattle with only the help of three dedicated dogs. Finally, you will learn how Smokey became known as the Gunnedah Hero, and how an envelope from the past, delivered to a young boy in the present, will change the future of the Gunnedah Hero's descendents.
Clancy Tucker weaves a wonderful story that will introduce young boys here in the US to a life lived in Australia at the turn of the last century. Clancy includes a glossary of Aussie terms which many here in the states will not be familiar with, but what fun to be introduced to something so very new and different. This book should not be missed. I highly recommend it.

Three 'evaluators' passed books that met basic objective standards of spelling, grammar, punctuation, and formatting. Those passing were awarded "The IndiePENdents Seal".
