2021 production from public domain text. Australian accent. Narrated by Denis Daly and Amy Soakes. Produced by Voicesof Today. 

This collection was published in 1901 and contains some of Lawson’s best known stories.
Most of the stories are set in the Australian bush, and feature many of Lawson’s iconic characters, like squatters, swagmen and struggling selector farmers. A persistent theme is the harshness of rural life and the inevitablity of personal tragedy.
