One of the great observers of Australian life, Henry Lawson has become part of the Australian national psyche, and his short stories and verse have come to affect how Australian's view their country. Yet at his best Lawson transcends even the very bush, the very outback, the very up-country, the very pub or selector's hut he conveys with such brevity and acuity: he makes specific places universal.

Henry Lawson is too often regarded as a legend rather than a writer to be enjoyed. In this selection Lawson is revealed as a writer whose delightful, humorous, wry and moving short stories continue to delight generations of readers. This is the essential Lawson collection - the classic of Australian classics.

I remember reading the Drover's Wife in high school, not that I can remember much of it now unfortunately!

This collection of short stories will be sent very soon...

Brilliant, yet another addition to my education in Australian literature! Never heard of Henry Lawson, with a Norwegian father called Larson.

Thank you very much, for both the books, the biscuits and the lovely card. Did you make it?
