Summary

"Horse tailer Barry McKell fills packsaddle canteens at Starvation Bore. This was probably the last packsaddle droving trek in Australia, when boss drover Peter Hood walked cattle from the Channel Country south to the railhead at Cockburn in SA. Peter died in 2003 in Charleville. His team included son Eric, Barry Kerr and Afghan cook Azzi Fuzulla. Azzi now lives in Victoria and continues to attend the annual rodeo in Tibooburra (where I photographed him last year)." -- Description supplied by photographer.
