I love this book. It makes me want to get out into the bush and find some of nature’s secrets. A Bush Calendar is Amy Mack’s nature diary recorded over twelve months. Her style is inspirational. It is an exquisite literary account of the Australian bush 100 years ago. Her particular interest is the birds and flowers that she finds. Her enthusiasm is infectious.

You can find this book second hand online or from Downunder Literature as an ebook.

Excerpt from A Bush Calendar

‘There are some days that make you laugh; days when little white clouds chase each other across a smiling sky, when little breezes play round the tree-tops and tickle the leaves into laughter; when wavelets skip and dance in the harbour, and birds gush and gurgle in the bush; when the whole world laughs with joy and you must laugh with it.’
