Gumnut design on jacket by Paul Jones and Ashcraft Fabrics

Dustjacket synopsis:

"The poetry selected for this collection reveals Paterson's love and appreciation for the Australina bush and its people. It contains not only widely published and quoted poems such as "On Kiley's Run" and "Clancy of the Overflow", but also lesser known poems such as "The Uplift" and "The Wind's Message". The colour plates of works by Australian artists subtly illustrate the images evoked by the poems."
