The Wilderness

Sydney: Angus & Robertson Ltd, 1922.

Moore, John D.

First Edition.

Beautiful little book about the bushland surrounding the author's garden describing its native trees, the imported flowers and plants for the orchard and many of the insects, birds and other creatures that live there.

"Once, long ago, part of it was a garden, and the clearing between the redgums and ironbarks was planted with fruit trees and roses: but the gardener went the way of all flesh, and those who came after him did not have the same love of the garden... Each spring the fruit blossoms still shine out on the unpruned trees -- all the lovelier for their disorder..."
