Australia’s most-loved bush poet, Banjo Paterson, is the writer who in many ways defined what it was to be Australian.
When a young man submitted a set of verses to the Bulletin in 1889 under the pseudonym ‘the Banjo’, it was the beginning of an enduring tradition. Today Banjo Paterson is still one of Australia’s best-loved poets. This complete and beautiful collection of his verse shows the bush balladeer at his very best with favourites such as ‘A Bush Christening’, ‘The Man from Ironbark’, ‘Clancy of the Overflow’ and the immortal ‘The Man from Snowy River’.
The perfect accompaniment to ‘Our Place’ scented candle.
