Children of the Bush is a collection of short stories written by Henry Lawson in 1902.
This book is made up of a set of stories and poems about the life of the Australian Bushmen and the difficulties of their way of life.
Take a tour of the different trades of the Bushman people: botineros, shearers, farmhands or wheelwrights. We will know the life of the people in a really hard world, in which forest fires or drought are not lacking.
The author himself, deaf from a young age, spent time living as a Bushman. This helps him better understand and capture the philosophy of the Bushman people with great precision. He also presents one of the great problems that this town had: the addiction of men to drink.
Each story is not completely independent, since there are some characters, themes and places that are present in several of them.
"Now this is the creed from the Book of the Bush
Should be simple and plain to a dunce:
“If a man’s in a hole you must pass round the hat
Were he jail-bird or gentleman once.”
“Is it any harm to wake yer?”
