Linkletter then shifted his focus to Western Australia more specifically an area near Esperance (a spectacularly beautiful spot if Google images are anything to go by)and embarked on sheep and cattle farming. Here he had more success mainly due to John Hagon a local Australian who became his farm manager. (Hagon's account of his trip across Australia in a 14 year old truck to claim his land in Esperance is a highlight here).
Linkletter's account is obviously dated since it was written in the 60's but he's a genial host and the book is full of interesting local knowledge and well worth perusing. Esperance here I come! as long as the weather holds and the 3 Dog Nights are few and far betweeen.(An Aboriginal term referring to how many dingo's it requires to keep warm and cuddle up to on a cold night.
