"The Banjo Of The Bush: The Work, Life And Times Of A.B. Paterson" is a biography of Australia's beloved poet and bush balladeer, A.B. Paterson. Written by Clement Semmler and published by Lansdowne in 1975, it is a comprehensive look into the life of one of Australia's greatest cultural figures. Banjo Paterson is known to most Australians as the balladeer of The Man from Snowy River and Other Verses, which was published in 1895, and down the years has far outsold the work of any other Australian poet. He takes his place with Henry Lawson as a household or classroom legend of the Australian ethos, a legend he himself lived out in the rough-and-tumble of the many Patersons. There was the Paterson of the Sydney Bulletin days in the 1890s, a journal which still excites admirers of its unique writers and cartoonists; Paterson jaunting through the Boer War meeting Kipling and Churchill or visiting China in the midst of the Boxer Rebellion. He participated in the first car trial from Sydney to Melbourne over a highway of bushtracks-Good training for driving ambulances in France during the First World War. There was Paterson the accomplished horseman who led a group of Australian rough-riders in Egypt, the authority on racehorses and horse-breeding. Bushman, overlander, squatter, adventurer, all suited the image of A. B. Paterson. Third Edition. Ex- Library - sticker is affixed to front endpaper. Condition: Good. Dust jacket: Good with general shelf wear. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
