    y Little Book of Trees Canberra : National Library of Australia , 2010 Z1743889 2010 anthology poetry Little Book of Trees celebrates the deep feelings Australians have about trees. Trees can invoke strong emotions - love and sorrow, wonder at their grandness and great age, anger against their destruction, pleasure in their beauty and appreciation of their wood. Trees tell us about our history: the tree used as a prison, the Dig Tree marked by explorers Burke & Wills and the Cazneaux tree that survived devastation of the surrounding land. In Little Book of Trees, works of some of Australia"s much-loved poets, including Judith Wright, Jack Davis, david Campbell and Henry Lawson, are accompanied by beautiful images from the Library's collection by artists such as Hans Heysen, Brett Whiteley, Wolfgang Sievers and Olive Cotton.
