The Man from Snowy River by A.B. PatersonIf you a woman of a certain age, and if you were (or still are) a horse lover, you most likely did what I did -watched The Man from Snowy River over and over and over again.
Which means you most likely also tracked down the poem. Paterson is actully more well known than most people think. What is the song everyone thinks of when thinking of Down Under? No, the one not by an 80s band. Yes, and guess who wrote it?
Paterson writes wonderfully about horses, really fun poems about nags that arent old, and steeplechases, and the surprise of Pastors Horse. He also, however, writes about drink, bicyles, and robbers (with an eye to realism).
Also, I swear his political power foresees American politics.
