While most of us live in cities, clinging to the coastal fringe, our sense of what the Australian is, or should be, is developed from the vast and varied inland landscape called the bush.But what do we mean by “the bush”, and how did it shape us?Starting with his ancestors’ road battle back to nature and earning a living from the earth, Don Watson explores the bush as he was and as he is now – triumph and ruin, banal and bizarre, the stories we like to tell about ourselves and the national character, and those we don’t have.A stage of memory work, writing travel and history, from La Brousse, takes us on a profoundly revealing and entertaining journey through the Australian landscape and character.
