And the bush has friends to meet him,

and their kindly voices greet him

In the murmur of the breezes and the river

on it's bars,

And he sees the vision splendid of the

sunlight plains extended,

And at night the wondrous glory of the

everlasting stars.

A.B. (Banjo)Patterson

from 'Clancy of the Overflow'

Deep. I bet you(would) enjoy Edward Abbey or Zane Grey.

Yes, we have beautiful Australian poetry, they paint such good pictures.

Another I particularly like is The Bell Birds by Henry Kendall
