And she looks at those things that persisted - the challenge and competition of life in the shearing shed and the glory of being the 'ringer', the fastest shearer on the board. Dr Riseborough brings us the history of shearing in the words of the shearers and shedhands, wool handlers and classers, cooks and contractors who work in the sheds, compete at the shows and set the records.
