We know about Waltzing Matilda, Clancy of the Overflow, The Man from Snowy River, The Drover's Wife, While the Billy Boils and Joe Wilson and His Mates, but we don't know about the two men who captured our imagination. Now, in Henry & Banjo, the storytellers become the story. And there is much to tell.Both men were country born, Henry on the goldfields of Grenfell and Banjo on a property near Orange, but their paths to literary immortality took very different routes - indeed at times their lives were ones of savage and all too tragic contrasts. The divide between the bush and the city, the haves and the have-nots is sharply revealed. There are broken hearts and thwarted dreams. Both men would become household names during their lifetimes. Both would have regrets.In this compelling exploration, James Knight reveals the lives and times of the two men whose words had the power to influence and change Australia. Their stories live on and now, so too, can they.
