Description

This ballad of the sheep-stealing swagman is known the world over. Here, with 'Banjo' Paterson's original lyrics and Freya Blackwood's stunning ochre-toned paintings, we are treated not just to the swagman's story, but to the story of the shearers' strikes of the time, of the squatter's family, and of the dangers of outback travel in the nineteenth century.
