Australia's national character and spirit have always been defined by 'the bush'. This entertaining, thought provoking, humorous, nostalgic and above all highly readable collection of stories for the modern reader shows why the romance endures.
From Jim Haynes, one of our most successful and prolific Australiana authors, comes a collection of classic stories from the remote outback, cattle station, wheat farm and rural town. It's in the bush that our iconic characters are found living and working, seeking refuge and exploring - Aborigines, explorers, stockmen, squatters, cockie farmers, shearers, swaggies and those tough independent bush women. Here are the big names of Australian writing and the lesser known writers who have been forgotten, but whose reputations are long overdue for revival.
Enjoy these bush gems by Henry Lawson, Marcus Clarke, Banjo Paterson, Henry Handel Richardson, Steele Rudd, Kenneth Cook, Brian James, E.O. Schlunke, Miles Franklin, D'Arcy Niland and more.
