Bush Studies

Author(s): Barbara Baynton

Fiction

The harsh lives of pioneer women in the Australian bush are difficult to imagine today. Barbara Baynton's stories present the tragedy, terror and back-breaking work that such women faced. These are not the stories of mates gathered round the fire, but of the dark loneliness of women. Not only are there fences to be built and a living to be coaxed from the land, but babies to be born - or buried - and the dangers of profound isolation to be endured, as well as the cruelties, or plain disappointments of men.
