Table of Contents
Robert Ingpen has travelled the Australian outback to commemorate the 150th birthday of Banjo Paterson.
His magnificent illustrations transport you to another place and time.
He has provided a map to indicate the places he ventured to, in search of Clancy, just in case you wish to embark on your own search.
Through his art and text he has found where fable and fact come together.
Clancy remains alive today in the art of camp drafting and the stockmen and jackaroos that now drive ute and four-wheel drives.
Where is that man who never took up the offer of a lift because it would only get him somewhere faster than he wanted to go and he'd have to listen to their "skite"? He is still out there, you only need to look.

In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
