About the inventor ~ Del Richards
Del Richards grew up in the Hunter Valley, NSW, born into a cattle family who first settled here in 1862. Originally his father dealt in dairy heifers, turning to beef when Britain joined the Common Market. Del. was always around cattle, successfully turning his hand to roping events in rodeo for eleven years. He's seen drought, floods and starvation prices. In 1994 he and his wife Pat sadly left the land, starting Fine Feather Tours ~ a birding business in Far North Queensland. Del then turned his attention to writing his book "My Country Life - for what it's worth." A memoir, a history of the development of Northern and Eastern Australia. A true chronicle of country life in an age that is quickly passing. A book that needed to be written.
Birdislandaustralia was also developed during the same busy period in his life.
