Jack Howe is a giant of a man with hands like tennis rackets, and blades that seemed like extensions of his arms as he shore the sheep in outback Queensland in the late nineteenth century. Others were amazed at the number of sheep he could shear in a day and a competition was set up to see who could shear 300 sheep in a day. A true story of legendary shearer, Jack Howe.
