Testimonials for Al Mabin Books
“Our 2 copies of “The Grower”arrived last Friday in our mail bag so thank you very much. The family have been viewing the books when they call in but will need plenty of time to fully browse through. It was a huge undertaking but you have shown such a diverse picture of Australian country life which will be a pleasure for all of us to read in the coming weeks.”
“Never in the history of rural Australia has a documentation of grass roots agriculture been accomplished like it has in The Grower series. Not only does it depict a detailed and fascinating insight spanning several industries, it captivates your heart and soul, specifically by the thrill of consistent mind altering images and text. Never have I been more gripped, reading such accomplished books in my lifetime.”
