Henry Lawson's works, along with those of Banjo Paterson, have become an essential part of the Australian literary tradition. Henry Lawson's storytelling focuses on the bush, on droving and shearing, on the characters and resilience of life in the outback. Born in a tent on the Grenfell goldfields in 1867, Lawson could well remember the roaring days of the gold rush and the life of pioneers. This collection includes some of Lawson's most beloved stories of life in the bush:
- "The Loaded Dog"
- "That There Dog of Mine"
- "The Ironbark Chip"
- "Mitchell: A Character Sketch"
- "The Union Buries its Dead"
