Looking for Rose Paterson: How Family Life Nurtured Banjo the Poet by Jennifer Gall
Rose Paterson, mother of bush poet Banjo Paterson, was a well-educated woman of genteel stock who found herself living in rural poverty. Rose's descriptions of her son Banjo, his personality and youthful exploits, paint a picture of the family life that shaped the man who would become one of Australia's most famous poets.
Join Jennifer Gall as she takes us into the rustic world of a remarkable Australian woman.
