Voice from the Bush
Don Watson’s new book is an essential companion to it’s award winning, brilliant predecessor, The Bush. A Single Tree includes diary extracts, memoirs, letters, journals, poems and fiction based on the same themes as The Bush. The accounts by settlers, explorers, stockmen, naturalists, artists and writers provide a varied array of perspectives and experiences of the land throughout the span of Australian history.
A former speech writer for Prime Minister Paul Keating and respected historian, Don Watson’s writing life spans academic history, television comedy, film writing, political speech writing, essays, biographies and travel. He is the winner of the 2015 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards Book of the Year and the Indie Book Award with his insightful book The Bush.
