Author(s): Banjo Paterson
The "Favourite Poems of Banjo Paterson" have always been, and still remain, firm favourites with most Australians. He was "a poet who captured characters, moments and events which are now part of our national consciousness...no one managed to tell stories which as much wit and humour as 'The Banjo'" This selection of poems includes old favourites such as "The Man from Snowy River", "Jim Carew", "Clancy of the Overflow" and many others well known to all Australians. But the essence of his collection is the vigour that the artist Rex Newell has brought to Paterson's poems. This outstanding series of paintings and watercolours truly reflect his sympathy and understanding of Paterson's subjects. >So here is an opportunity for all those who love the work of A. B. Paterson to renew their acquaintance with his poems in a stimulating, fresh and thoroughly appealing new volume.
