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 Aboriginal Australians, 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.

About the Author

Before becoming a professional entertainer, song writer and verse writer in 1988, Jim Haynes taught writing, literature, history and drama in schools and universities from outback NSW to Britain and back again. He is the author of many Great Australian titles, including horse racing, yarns and unknown true stories. He is one of the country's most prolific and successful Australian authors. He was awarded an OAM in 2016 for 'service to the performing arts as an entertainer, author, broadcaster and historian'.
