“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.
This 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.
