Clancy of the Overflow
, the legendary bushman of Banjo Paterson's immortal verse may never have existed. But does it matter?
He is every Australian, a very real, even larger than life figure, a free and independent spirit galloping through the wide open spaces: vigorous, hearty and self-reliant.
On these pages the artist has captured Clancy, both as he may have been and as we imagine he was, blending into his natural environment and contrasting his lifestyle with that of the dirt and dust and the noise on the city.
This book continues to be one of Banjo Paterson's best works.
