While most of Australia lives in cities clinging to the coastal fringe, their sense of what an Australian is, or should be, is drawn from the vast and varied inland called the bush. But what do they mean by 'the bush', and how has it shaped them?
Starting with his forebears' battle to drive back nature and eke a living from the land, Don Watson explores the bush as it was and as it is now: the triumphs and the ruination, the commonplace and the bizarre, the stories Australians like to tell about themselves and the national character and those they don't.
A milestone work of memoir, travel writing and history, The Bush takes us on a profoundly revelatory and entertaining journey through the Australian landscape and character.
