Bob Magor Bush Poet
Tamworth Jan 2007 Australian Bush Laureate Awards – 2007 winner
Bob Magor left school at 15 years of age, then spent about 25 years working his sheep and cattle farm in South Australia. At the age of "about 40" he decided to follow his sons who announced they wanted to pursue a career "off the land".
Bob began putting his rural experience to use by writing bush verse and poetry and has now written the listed below..
The first of his works was released at the Tamworth Country Music festivals of the early 1990s, and he has gone from strength to strength since that time.
His books include Blasted Crows, Blood on the Board, Caravanning Bliss, Donkey Derby, and Snakes Alive and The FMG.
His latest book (2005) is "The Exodus"
Do a Goggle on his name and many hits will result, mainly locations his books can be purchased from.
One such site is here (most of the above words were borrowed from that site!)
The webmaster has a complete set of his books, they are wonderful, but to hear the author recite them is better still!
When he is home, Bob resides in Myponga South Australia.
The email address inside the cover of "Exodus" is bobmagor"at"chariot.net.au (change the "at" to @ to email Bob)
