Growing up on the family property, Curbur, in outback Western Australia, Murchison country, Greg Keynes' childhood seemed idyllic. Poignant memories of exploring with his dogs; hunting, working and joking with the local Yamatji people. Breaking free from family ties as a young man, Greg began his own aerial mustering business and fell in love with Kim, a girl from Perth. Together their life was sweet, until one day, a routine muster in the rocky gorges of the Hamersley Range went horribly wrong. Along the majestic blue ranges and scouring river beds of the Pilbara, the Flying Bushman is more than a story of memories in the outback, it's a collective reminder of the true Australian Spirit with our resilience, courage and wild hearts that survive the harsh and at times unforgiving terrains that ultimately make us who we are. The Flying Bushman is liberally illustrated with original photographs from Greg's working life as a chopper pilot.
