Banjo Paterson is our best known and most loved bush poet. Less well known, but no less captivating, are his warm and funny novels about Australian life. An Outback Marriage tells of a young Englishman on a tour of the colonies, who gets more than he bargained for when he sets out to find the heir to a fortune. This is the story not of one marriage but several, bringing the whole of colonial society - from the squattocracy to cattle rustlers - to vivid, unforgettable life. No writer better captured the heart of early Australia better than Paterson - the landscape, the weather, the trials and the earthy humour that was the key to survival.
