“This is the first selection of Henry Lawson’s work which draws on all his varied writing – stories and sketches, verse, journalism, autobiography, and letters.  The book follows Lawson’s development from his earliest published work through to the famous stories which have established him as the finest and most original writer in the Australian bush yarn tradition.
The selection includes comic tales like “The Loaded Dog”, “Stiffner and Jim”, and “The Iron-Bark Chip”, as well as the moving Joe Wilson sequence and the memorable “Drover’s Wife”.  Outspoken articles, personal letters, radical and often fervently patriotic verse, and the invaluable “Fragment of Autobiography” round out this complete profile of Lawson the writer.
In his valuable introduction, Brian Kiernan relates the work to the man, and to Australian society and writing.”
