This collection of poetry by Lorraine Marwood describes the essence of Australian life on the land. The anthology contains strong themes of farming and rural living and covers topics such as the working day, hardship & drought, beloved pets and playing in the bush. It also features a special heartfelt poem called Black Saturday that touches on the tragic bushfires which devastated rural Victoria in 2009. This beautifully designed collection, with interspersed images and drawings immerses the reader in the harsh realities and inspiring moments of living on a farm in Australia.
