Peter Byrne's Aussie-inflected delivery of this sweeping biography is pitch-perfect. From the spacious Outback to the literary center of Sidney, Byrne provides the lilting sounds of the accents in this detailed life history of the famous writer, editor, and adventurer A.B. "Banjo" Paterson. Byrne's narrative style captures the rollicking spirit of the era and the tenor of the people met along the way, including Breaker Morant, Rudyard Kipling, Winston Churchill, and Miles Franklin, author of MY BRILLIANT CAREER. Banjo wrote ballads, including "The Man from Snowy River," the lyrics to "Waltzing Matilda," and did foreign correspondence from the Boer War. His legacy is well served, and this audiobook is expertly narrated and worth one's time. A.D.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2018]
