Item Description

Journey down under in the company of Australia's finest writers.  From stories of survival in the bush to vacationing at the beach, from immigrants adjusting to the new land to aboriginal displacement to the city, these twenty-five enthralling stories allow the reader to cover this large continent in a most imaginative way.

Ranging from the colonial period to contemporary Australia, these stories invoke the alluring scent of gum trees, the exotic kangaroos and dingoes, the busy city streets of Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, and the vast and mysterious outback, as well as some unforgettable Australian characters and their voices.

By traveling with the greatest Australian writers who know the land best, readers can more deeply experience the culture of this country and the rich tradition of its literature.

Whereabouts Press is an independent publisher of books that convey a sense of a place—a country, a region, a city—through stories. Unlike guidebooks written by professional travel writers, Travelers Literary Companions feature stories written by literary writers—all of whom are native to the places they write about. They didn’t write specifically for travelers. They wrote because they had good stories to tell. And their stories tell us not just about people, but about the soul of a place.
