A Bush Calendar

Mack, Amy E.
112 pages, revised edition, first thus. Apart from a gift inscription on the front paste down, and a neat bookseller's label on the tail of the front end paper, a clean, unmarked and solid copy. "Each month the Australian bushland has some new spectacle to offer - perhaps as subtle as grey grevilleas or as exuberant as clouds of wattle; prehaps as noisy as nestling cuckoos or as discreet as a morepork's camouflage. A BUSH CALENDAR is full of these sights and pleasures. Amy Mack takes us tramping in the early morning through the summer bush still wet with dew to breakfast with her beside a bank of wild violets. Or we down chores and escape to the midday stillness of a rocky path, or set off in the late afternoon and delay to see the moonlight catch in silhouette in the dramatic shapes of the she-oaks. Along the way there are birds and flowers to observe and identify, the nutty smell of the bush to inhale and the sounds of cicadas and birdsong." (Back cover) "Mack was editor of the 'Women's Page' of the Sydney Morning Herald from 1907-14, publishing her first book, a collection of essays entitled A Bush Calendar, in 1909. "
