Classic Australian Short Stories


Drawn from the late 19th to the early 20th centuries, all the stories in this collection in some way capture the spirit of the young Australian nation.  Some are the humorous, others stack, even horrifying, but all are entertaining and in some way add to the picture of Australia’s gradually emerging national character.



Out of stock


While out boating one Sunday afternoon on a billabong across the river, we saw a young man on horseback driving some horses along the bank.  He said it was a fine day, an asked if the water was deep there.  The joker of our party said it was deep enough to drown him, and he laughed and drove further up.  We didn’t take much notice of him.
