Rose Paterson, mother of bush poet Banjo Paterson, was a well-educated woman of genteel stock who found herself living in rural poverty. Rose's descriptions of her son Banjo, his personality and youthful exploits, paint a picture of the family life that shaped the man who would become one of Australia's most famous poets. Join author Jennifer Gall as she takes us into the rustic world of a remarkable Australian woman.
