These books were originally published in 1914 as a 'pocket editions for the trenches', designed for soldiers to slip into their back pockets and carry with them through their war days. Probably purchased by wives, girlfriends and mothers, they were a little piece of Australia to relish amongst the horrors of war. The 47 poems in the book include all the favourites: A Bush Christening, A Mountain Station, Black Swans, Clancy of the Overflow, Conroy's Gap, In the Droving Days, Over the Range, Our New Horse, Saltbush Bill, The Man from Snowy River, and The Daylight is Dying. About the Author Banjo Paterson is one of our most famous Australians and probably Australia's best-known and most-loved poet. Paterson wrote poems about the Australian bush that are not only part of the Australian culture but have played a huge part in defining it.
