Ebook description:

A Single Tree assembles the uncooked materials underpinning Don Watson’s award-winning The Bush. These numerous and haunting voices span the 4 centuries since Europeans first set eyes on the continent. Each of those different contributors – settlers, explorers, anthropologists, naturalists, stockmen, surveyors, itinerants, artists and writers- represents a specific place and time. Men in awe of the panorama or cursing it; aspiring to subdue and exploit it or discovering themselves defeated by it. Women reflecting on the land’s harshness and sweetness, on the strangeness of their lives, their pleasures and miseries, the character and behavior of the boys. Europeans writing about indigenous Australians, typically with clever sympathy and curiosity however usually with contempt, and infrequently describing acts of startling brutality. This assortment includes diary extracts, memoirs, journals, letters, histories, poems and fiction, and follows the same unfastened themes of The Bush . The science of the panorama and local weather, and the best way we’ve got perceived them. Our deep and mawkish connection to the land, and our equally deep ignorance and abuse of it. The heroic myths and legends. The enchantments. The bush as a formative and defining factor in Australian tradition, self-image and character. The wildlife, the waterways, the colors. The heroic, self-defining tales, the weird and horrible, and those misplaced within the deep silences. There are accounts of journeys, of labor and recreation, of spiritual observance, of creation and destruction. Stories of uncanny occasions, peculiar and incredible characters, deep ironies, and of land limitless. And musings on what may be the way forward for the bush: as a novel setting, a meals bowl, a mine, a wellspring of nationwide id . . . From Dampier and Tasman to Tim Flannery and diverse up to date farmers, environmentalists and gray nomads, these items signify an unlimited array of experiences, views and data. A Single Tree is an important companion to its good predecessor
