From Two-Wheel Tracks to Bitumen Highways by Tony Liddle
About the book:
Tony Liddle was born at Hatches Creek in 1940, the son of loving and enterprising parents who worked hard all their lives. As a 15-year-old, and still at school, he got a job at an uncle’s brickyard to earn money for a footy trip to Darwin and buy a camera. The camera became his constant companion. He got a truck licence at 17 and spent 47 years driving and operating machinery throughout the Northern Territory. Covering countless kilometres on two-wheeled tracks and bitumen roads, he became known as someone who always got the job done and a real gentleman of the road. In 2014 his name was added to the wall of honour at the National Road Transport Hall of Fame. This is his story.
