The Man from Snowy River

Author(s): Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson; Annette MacArthur-Onslow (Illustrator)

Australian Picture Books

Banjo Paterson and Henry Lawson were writing for the Sydney Bulletin' in 1892 when they decided to have a duel of poetry. The idea was to increase the number of poems they could sell to the paper. It began in fun but later became bitter. Paterson wrote many poems and stories about his travels in the Outback. Three of his poems were "Waltzing Matilda," "The Man from Snowy River" and "Clancy of the Overflow." The Man From Snowy River is a fast paced Australian adventure.
