A Taste Of the Outback
I'd say Geoffrey is passionate to be the point of being obsessive about 'Fair Dinkum' Australia and our
heritage. As Peter Brock put it when describing Geoffrey's work "Aussie culture that is currently on the endangered list".
Who hasn't experienced the desolation of the Outback, the beauty, the climate,
the flies, the roos, the people, the characters, the sense of humour and more.
What names spring to mind? Names like John Flynn, Tex Morton, Slim Dusty, RM Williams, Sidney Kidman, Pat
Buchanan, Ted Egan, & Bruce Simpson!
What about Namatjira, "Banjo", & Lawson.?
Then there are the Legends like John Flynn, Sir Sidney Kidman, Bill Harney, Jackie Howe, Pat
Buchanan, and RM Williams, to name just a few. You can add the bush poets from 'Banjo' to Lawson and Ogilvie and the showmen like Slim Dusty and Tex Morton to the painters like Namatjira and authors such as
Patsy Adam Smith.
Geoffrey weaves a tapestry of songs, verse and yarns about the people of the Outback. If you love Australia or the Outback, this you will enjoy!
