The Bush and the Never Never is full of colourful people, bizarre incidents (comic and tragic) and little-known facts about bush life in Australia - Its subjects range from the occupations and preoccupations of bushmen and women to the hazards of life in the bush - from swagmen, b̀ush characters', squatters and selectors, their modes of transport and their recreations and amusements, to bunyips, drought, bush medicine, weather forecasting, treatments for snakebite, and children lost in the bush. A rare blend of amusing anecdotes and carefully researched history, The Bush and the Never Never will both inform and delight all those interested in Australia's rural past.
