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)
