Waltzing Matilda

Book - 2006
Rate this:
This famous ballad of the outback wanderer who drowned himself rather than lose his freedom needs no introduction. There is no swagman as legendary as the tragic hero of this tale, and there is no Australian song as well-known throughout the world. Here the famous ballad is given new depth and perspective. Talented illustrator Freya Blackwood has explored the intriguing background behind the writing of this song, and has shown us not just the lively story of a proud outback larrikin, but also a glimpse into the clashes and struggles that were so formative of Australian history at the turn of the last century. The book is accompanied by a CD by John Williamson, presenting the song in his unique style, plus an instrumental only and a sing-along version.
