Publisher's Summary

A unique collection of original Australian bush ballads and the stories that inspired them.

Waltzing Australia is a wonderful celebration of the Australian bush and the people who live there, written by a gifted storyteller who's spent much of his life working on the land. Featuring 50 poems and stories that tell of the heartbreak, humour and hard yakka that come with living and working in the bush - many of which were written on long days droving sheep and cattle, on the back of a motorbike or by the fading light in camp hundreds of miles from anywhere.

These evocative bush verses and the tales behind them shine light on characters and events from Australia's pioneering past as well as embracing Tim's own experiences in the outback.

Boring

Tediously boring. Expected much better from Jack Thompson. His voice as continuously monotone but was effective in putting me to sleep quickly. Not recommended when driving. Should have a warning.
