A Ute Picnic

ISBN: 9781921529771

and other Australian poems

“From the everyday routine of milking the cows and the excitement of children learning the rules of rodeo riding; to the tragedy of drought and the terror of the Black Saturday bushfires- snapshots of rural Australia are brought to life in this new collection by award-wining poet, Lorraine Marwood.”

Suitable for readers Primary aged and upwards

IThis collection of poems is my first collection with Walker books and contains a prose poem I love- ‘A ute picnic”.  This poem reflects the gentle yet seasonal and unpredictability of farming.  It is grounded in my own children’s childhood and that of many generations of farming families.
