Banjo Paterson, Henry Lawson, CJ Dennis and Adam Lindsay Gordon. Once upon a time these were household names and Australians could recite their most famous verse. Here for the first time in one volume are all the great bush ballads, memorable songs and other poetry from the glory days of our bush tradition. If you always wondered what came after 'There was movement at the station...' or 'We'll all be rooned said Hanrahan...' then Traditional Australian Verse is the book for you. Here too are the original versions of 'Advance Australia Fair', 'Bound for Botany Bay' and 'The Dog Sat on the Tucker Box, plus the bawdy version of 'The Bastard from the Bush'. To entertain and delight the newcomer and the traditionalist alike, this treasury offers equal parts merriment, calumny, lyricism and gentle melancholia.
