Bush Quest

A compilation of essays and adventures, originally printed in the Melbourne Age, edited and freshly illustrated especially for this book.

"To read this book is to go walking with the most sensitive and appreciative guides. You walk in the rain and wind, wade through swamps, crawl on frosty grass or defy the hot sun of summer beneath an open sky.

It is a rich, exciting, and stimulating experience to walk with Robin Hill. Nature plays on him like a harp, and it is this music that one hears in his prose."
Alan Marshall (from the foreword to Bush Quest)

Bush Quest. Melbourne: Landsdowne Press, 1962. Octavo green cloth with gilt lettering at spine and design of egrets in flight on the front cover. Front endpapers depicting Cape Barren Geese, rear endpapers depicting ibis and egrets. Dustwrapper with a full-colour illustration of Palm Cockatoo. Foreward by Alan Marshall.

Bushland and Seashore

Bushland and Seashore

In his second book, Robin takes the reader on a journey through the Australian natural landscape, starting at the sea's edge and leading to the arid inland areas of Australia.

Naturalist painters who respect the need for accuracy are themselves a rare species. Robin has captured the Australian landscape and fauna in a manner for which it is difficult to recall an equal. An unorthodox venture into the wondrous unspoiled world of Australian fauna, fully illustrated, with an index of 114 different species.

Bushland and Seashore. Melbourne: Landsdowne Press, 1962. Quarto pictorial boards.
