Published originally in 1900 by Angus and Robertson, On the Track is a collection of short stories that captures the lives of men and women living in turn-of-the-century Australia, using humour and sympathy in the descriptions.

Henry Lawson (1867-1922) was a short story writer, journalist, novellist and perhaps, most notably, a balladist. He contributed prose and verse to a number of publications including Bulletin, Daily Worker and Boomerang.
