Man From Snowy RiverA Banjo Paterson
He cleared the fallen timber in his stride,
And the man from Snowy River never shifted in his seat-
It was grand to see that mountain horseman ride.
There is no greater Australian bush hero than the calssic Man from Snowy River, and no greater bush legend than his famous downhill ride.
When a valuable colt escapes and runs off with the mountain brumbies, the crack riders and stockmen of the region get together to bring it back. But the countryside is wild and rugged and only the toughest horse and rider can keep up with the wild bush horses.
Award-winning illustrator Freya Blackwood takes a stunning new approach to Banjo Paterson's most famous bush ballad. She brilliantly captures the drama of this much-loved poem, as well as the romance and dizzying landscape of the Australian alpine country.
