"The Outback" by Annaliese Porter. Annaliese Porter was only eight years old when she wrote The Outback. She has captured the Australian outback in all its moods in this moving bush ballad about the country’s vast interior. The Outback, illustrated by respected Aboriginal artist Bronwyn Bancroft, depicts recognisable Australian landscapes and animals such as Uluru, dingoes, cockatoos, snakes and goannas. A stunning picture book destined to become an Australian classic.
