“Around the Boree Log and Other Verses” is a wonderful collection of poems by Australian Poet Patrick Hartigan. This work celebrates the lives and mores of the outback pastoral folk that the author ministered when he was a peripatetic curate to the southern New South Wales and Riverina towns of Thurgoona, Berrigan and Narrandera. Patrick Joseph Hartigan (1878 – 1952) was an Australian Poet and pastor. He was most famous for his poems of the Australian bush, which were an instant success and enjoyed popularity as far abroad as Ireland and the United States. Contents include: “Around the Boree Log”, “Calling to Me”, “The Little Irish Monster”, “One by One”, “Ten Little Steps and Stairs”, “The Trimmin’s on the Rosary”, “The Birds Will Sing Again”, “The Old Bush School”, “Six Brown Boxer hats”, “The Libel”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
