Akubra Is Australian for Hat


This is the story of the history-making hat that has been a part of Australian life since 1912. In "Akubra Is Australian for Hat," Grenville Turner takes us on a journey with this unique Australian institution. Aussies have lived, loved, and died under their Akubras, and wearing one has been a longstanding tradition throughout the continent. The Akubra does it all. It provides shade from the harsh Australian sun, works as a fan on a hot day, keeps snakes at bay, serves as a water jug for a horse, and swats away flies. It can even be worn as a hat. Go figure. This book isn't just about history. Its tone is witty and lighthearted, and breathes that famous Aussie attitude--you'll have no worries as long as you read more
