Spine title: The portable Barbara Baynton. On cover: 'Bush studies', other stories, 'Human toll', verse, essays and letters.

This comprehensive volume presents Baynton’s revised text of stories from her brilliant collection Bush Studies, together with three later stories and the full text of her novel Human Toll - reprinted for the first time. Human Toll in parts approaches the intensity of her best short stories; it is also concerned with the vulnerability of women, the greed of men, the vapidity of religion, the vulgarity and ugliness of social life in the Australian bush and town.

In addition there are previously uncollected poems and articles as well as an interview, all revealing Baynton’s disconcertingly independent viewpoint and her social awareness.
This wide-ranging biographical and critical introduction reveals much about Baynton, whose remarkable life began in the bush as the daughter of a carpenter and ended in fashionable London society.
