    A.B `Banjo Paterson was not simply the author of the words of `Waltzing Matilda, Australias unofficial national anthem, and many other classic ballads such as `The man from Snowy River and `Clancy of the Overflow. Though it is now almost forgotten, he was a first-rate war correspondent for the Sydney Morning Herald, a friend of `Breaker Morant, an expert horseman, and later an editor of The Sydney Evening News and The Sportsman and the earliest collection of traditional Aussie bush songs. This new paperback edition includes over 50 of his most popular poems and a new chapter on the development on his poetry.

    Derek Parker has been an editor and critic, and is the author of eight previous biographies. Derek lives in Sydney with his wife Julia, with whom he has co-authored another 28 books on various subjects from astrology to travel.
