Sixteen beloved poems by Australia's most famous poet, A.B. Banjo Paterson read by Australia's most loved actor, Jack Thompson. Jack and Banjo share a love of the Australian bush and the Australian character. In making a recording of Banjo's poems Jack hopes they will bring Banjo's fine, innocent, whimsical creations into the lives of many others, and introduce a new generation to the wisdom, the values and the humour that form one of the foundations of the Australian character. "I've loved these poems since I first heard them as a boy. They conjure up a world that's miles away from the city life most of us live today. For me, they provide a window into the very heart of Australia". Jack Thompson.
