Top Class Wool Cutters (ISBN 0-473-03657-6)

Des Williams - 2006

topclass

Top Class Wool Cutters, written by Des Williams and published to coincide with the 1996 world shearing championships at Masterton's Golden Shears, is a compendium of information and stories providing just a glimpse into the world of shearers and shearing. The book summarises shearing world championship results from 1977, provides profiles on shearing guns from both sides of the Tasman and includes an in-depth study of what a shearer (Alan MacDonald) goes through in preparing an attempt at a world shearing record - in this case MacDonald's successful world lamb shearing tally of 831 at Waitanguru on 22 December 1992.
