Stories that take us from the Mallee to the back of Bourke and beyond ... an indispensable collection about the enduring appeal of the Australian bush.

Australia's national character and spirit have always been defined, rightly or wrongly, 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 and iconic stories from the remote outback, cattle station, wheat farm and rural town. The bush is where our iconic characters are found living in, taking refuge or exploring, whether an Aborigine, explorer, squatter, bushranger or stockman.

Here are the big names of Australian bush 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, EO Schlunke, AC McCay, D'Arcy Niland and more.
