Looking for Clancy (HB)

Author(s): A.B. 'Banjo' Paterson and Robert Ingpen


In 1889 the revered Australian folk poet, A.B. 'Banjo' Paterson, first published his ballad, Clancy of the Overflow. The verse achieved immediate popularity and, with the creation of his legendary character, Clancy — a free-spirited stockman — Paterson had summed up the essence of the Australian outback. To mark the 150th birthday of Banjo Paterson, award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen has journeyed into the Australian outback, exploring the myth of Clancy through words and illustrations, to find what it is that has made Clancy such an enduring figure in Australian folklore.
