    What a pleasure it was to read Ron Iddon's latest book, The Redspear Team. Iddon certainly knows about Australian country life. Set in the rural Queensland town of Redspear,the author captures well the landscape, people and life of this part of Australia. In Redspear there are engaging characters, authentic locations and stories you stay with to the end - surely recurring hallmarks of this writer's work. Mary Carmody, the doyen of Redspear's society and the most prominent character in the book, owns the town's main hotel and has extensive other business interests. Strong-willed, generous and a fine judge of character, Mary is typical of those wonderful matriarchs found in many smaller towns throughout Australia. The book reads easily and authentically. The dialogue rings true. This is a fine contribution to the literature of the Australian outback and is warmly recommended.

    Even before I had finished the book the seed was germinating, I wanted to visit Redspear! The author describes his book as a "portrait of life in an Australian country town", and indeed it is! Ron Iddon has used his 'brush" well on this portrait. After giving the town itself a strong wash of colour, Iddon has deftly applied finer, more precise strokes to his characters, bringing texture and warmth to the men and women who call Redspear home.
