About the book

Book cover 'Jam Tree Gully' by John Kinsella
Winner

In this daring new collection, Australia's preeminent environmental poet confronts the legacy of Thoreau's Walden. With Walden as his inspiration, John Kinsella moved with his family back to rural Australia, where he wrote the poems in this original collection exploring the nature of our responsibility and connection to the land.

One of the most original and poignantly authentic poets writing in English."—Harold Bloom
