In this combined edition Holden looks at approximately 50 stations and their homesteads, telling yarns about the history of each station, the land and those who worked on it. Station Country: The Collection is illustrated with images taken by Holden of the land, homesteads, the stock and working dogs as well as the characters who live and work on each station.
