About this product
- DescriptionAustralia's national character and spirit have always been defined, rightly or wrongly, by 'the bush'. This entertaining, thought-provoking, humorous, stalgic 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 kwn 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.
- Author BiographyJim Haynes has travelled far and wide to meet and interview the people whose stories make up this book. From his days as part of the Slim Dusty touring show, Jim has been aware of the special nature of the trucking industry in both rural and urban Australia. Before becoming a professional entertainer, songwriter, verse writer and singer in 1988, Jim Haynes taught writing, literature, history and drama in schools and universities from outback NSW to Britain. While teaching he gained two masters' degrees in literature, from New England University and the University of Wales. Jim Haynes is the author of many Great Australian titles including bestselling books on Trucking, Railways, Aviation, Horse Racing and the Sea. He is one of Australia's most successful and prolific Australiana authors.
