    This collection of the raw material that Don Watson used to research his award-winning 2014 book The Bush comprises diary extracts, memoirs, journals, letters, histories, poems and fiction. Most of the materials display a deep and sentimental connection to the land, and an equally deep ignorance and abuse of it. All the romantic themes are here – the heroic myths and legends; the rural landscape as the formative and defining element in Australian culture; the mysterious and sometimes malevolent deep silence. Watson presents us with accounts of journeys, of work and recreation, of religious observance, of creation and destruction. He also gives us musings on what the future of the bush might be.
