Part 1 of a three-part series of enhanced e-books of Warren Fahey's AUStRALIAN FOLK SONGS AND BUSH BALLADS, this volume covers the first five chapters of Fahey's stirring, foot-stomping treasure-trove of traditional songs that celebrate what it is to be Australian. Special features include a video introduction to the book by the author plus a video introduction to each chapter, and audio and sheet music of the songs. You will also find fascinating background notes and many rare images. this volume deals with convicts; bushrangers, bolters and other wild colonials; early pioneers; sea travel; and currency lads and lasses. Far from being dusty old songs to be thrown in a drawer and forgotten, these are songs to be sung with gusto whenever the spirit takes you - on holiday, at school, at a party, around the barbecue or kitchen table. this enhanced e-book is a must for anyone interested in Australia's musical and cultural history. And it has been collected by the one who knows them best: legendary folklorist and performer, Warren Fahey.
