AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dorothea Mackellar's anthemic poem 'My Country' captured the heart of the Australian nation when it was first published in 1908, and the love affair has continued for a hundred years.

'To celebrate the poem's centenary, Peter Luck presents this superb photographic homage to Dorothea and her country, in all of its beguiling moods.'
