After Lawson's return to Sydney from Western Australia and New Zealand, Angus and Robertson published Over the Sliprails in conjunction with another collection of prose, On the Tracks. This melange of new and previously published material reveals Lawson's astounding ability to portray Australian rural life during the colonial period.

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.
