Banjo Paterson is Australia's most famous poet. Ballads such as ‘The Man from Snowy River', ‘Clancy of the Overflow', ‘The Man from Ironbark', ‘Mulga Bill's Bicycle' and ‘Waltzing Matilda' have become part of our Australian heritage.

Known as a poet of the bush, Banjo's iconic verse captures the landscape, hardship, resilience and humour of Australian life at the turn of the nineteenth century.

This is a treasury is of Banjo's most loved poems, as well as some of his lesser-known works. The poems appear in chronological order and cover Australian bush life, as well broader topics such as war and Federation.

This beautifully illustrated collection offers a unique glimpse into our national history and identity, as told by one of our most iconic and best-loved voices.

      Comments about Banjo Paterson Treasury:

      The magic of Oslo's pictures makes Mr Lawson's words fresh again. They echo the seeming simplicity of the poems.
