    The Australian Stories are timeless nad shall always be remembered

  2. Karen Dahl Says:

    One of Bryce’s greatest contributions was in fact to support the Australian Greens. I met him at one of their fundraisers for Bob Brown and he spoke so passionately about his dismay concerning the destruction of native forests in Tasmania. He was a genius storyteller of immense decency and insight. It was an absolute privilege to have met him in person and to have learned about what really moved him.
