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 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'. These well-known verses are joined here by his comic verse, his remarkable war poems, including 'We're All Australians Now', and lesser known works.

About the Author

A.B. ‘Banjo’ Paterson was born at Narramla, NSW, in 1864. He practiced law until 1900, when he found success as a writer, contributing ballads to the Sydney Bulletin. During the Boer War, Paterson worked as a war correspondent for the Sydney Morning Herald and remained in journalism, continuing to write poetry and fiction, and broadcasting as well. He died in 1941.
