      • Preface by Tom Shapcott.
      • Introduction by Lynn Tranter, Tour Organiser. 'On a visit to the United States last year I was encouraged by the interest that North Americans were showing in Australia, particularly in our visual arts and our movies. But people didn't seem to know a great deal about our poetry....So I felt it was time to bring some of the best of our poets up to the top of the planet, and give America and Canada a chance to see and hear what was happening 'Down Under'.'
