Bush Christmas
Celebrate Christmas in July this year with Ralph Smart's delightful children's comic adventure story.

Hugely successful in both Australia and Britain, Bush Christmas chronicles the tale of a family of rural Australian children, an English cousin and their Aboriginal friend Neza, as they track three horse thieves (including likable cuss Chips Rafferty) across the Blue Mountains and Burragorang Valley.

A glimpse into a bygone era of outback life in post-war Australia, the innately charming Bush Christmas features superb photography from George Heath.
