Ogilvie, a young Scottish writer who lived and worked in Australia during the golden years of Australian literature, the 1890s. Inspired by his experiences as a jackaroo, drover, shearer and horse-breaker on far-flung stations, Ogilvie wrote immensely popular ballads and stories that rivalled those of his contemporaries, Banjo Paterson and Henry Lawson.'
