Walkabout through the Life of Jack Crombie

by Gwen Crombie and Jack Crombie

About The Book

Jack Crombie is a full blood Aboriginal of the Yakunytjatjara people. He tells his story of tribal life in the far north of central South Australia, walkabout with his family as a child, station life with the Crombie family on Mount Eba, South Australia.

This book is told in Jack’s perspective. It chronicles how he made a name for himself as a rough rider and how he was famed for doing what he loved most—rodeo riding and traveling.

Jack continued his career even after sustaining injuries when he was impaled on a post after being thrown from a bucking horse. On returning to South Australia in 1979, Jack continued to station work in the Coober Pedy area before returning to the town to live, trying his luck at opal mining while working with the town council on the Water Works project. In 1993, Jack joined the South Australian Police Force.
