Summary

Barbara Baynton's short-story collection Bush Studies is famous for its stark realism-for not romanticising bush life, instead showing all its bleakness and harshness. Economic of style, influenced by the great nineteenth-century Russian novelists, Baynton presents the Australian bush as dangerous and isolating for the women who inhabit it.
