    Henry Lawson's works, along with those of Banjo Paterson, have become an essential part of the Australian literary tradition. Henry Lawson's storytelling focuses on the bush, on droving and shearing, on the characters and resilience of life in the outback. Born in a tent on the Grenfell goldfields in 1867, Lawson could well remember the roaring days of the gold rush and the life of pioneers.

    As either realist or romancer, Henry Lawson was described in his own lifetime as the "first articulate voice of the real Australia", later to become fondly known as the "bard of the bush". His death in 1922 left Australia with a wealth of literary works unequalled by any artist. In this selection of short stories, accompanied by classical music, Lawson captures the true Australian spirit of his fellow countrymen.

    As a vivid portrait of alienation and despair few narratives have surpassed Henry Lawson’s depiction of the grinding poverty endured by many settlers in the Australian outback. In the simple and direct language of his stoic narrator, Joe Wilson, he delivers an unforgettable depiction of a pioneering way of life, but one completely stripped of glamour or glory. Generally considered to be one of the finest Australian short stories ever written, Water Them Geraniums is read by Australian narrator, Denis Daly.
