“Henry Kendall was born in 1839, an Australian, brought up among the mountains and forests of the south coast of New South Wales.  From the start, his life was rarely happy, and as a young man he was a disturbing mixture of shyness, melancholy, and intense ambition.
His poetry is perhaps the most lyrical of any of the Australian poets – ‘singing pictures’, A. G. Stephens called his wonderfully evocative tributes to the Australian bush.  Poems such as his well-known ‘Orara’, ‘Mooni’ and ‘To a Mountain’, are filled with the sights and sounds and light of the bush he loved.”
