Selected illustrations by David Bromley.From Inside the front cover:"Bush Ballads of Australia"Stockmen and shearers, drovers and musterers, squatters and selectors, bushrangers and troopers, diggers and miners — these are the men who forged our national character and whose exploits, real or fabled, contributed to its robustness. All the qualities we celebrate today — physical hardiness, self-reliance, toughness and suspicion of authority tempered always by laconic good humour — are here preserved in an anthology of more than one hundred of our best-loved bush ballads drawn from the sadly anonymous verse of the gold rush days to the best work of such masters as Henry Lawson, 'Banjo' Paterson and Will Ogilvie among others.The Golden Age of the Ballad was also a Golden Age of pen illustrations, examples of which, combined with chapter decorations by David Bromley, add freshness to a collection of continuing appeal.
