About the author (2007)

Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson (1864 - 1941) was born near Orange in outback NSW. He practised as a solicitor from 1886 and began to submit verse to The Bulletin. Paterson exchanged law for journalism in 1901 and subsequently worked as a newspaper correspondent and editor in Australia and abroad. He wrote prolifically, producing four books of verse, two novels and several collections of sketches and reminiscences, and his war dispatches were highly acclaimed. In 1939 Paterson was appointed a Commander of the British Empire for his contribution to Australian literature.
