Henry Lawson's works, along with those of Banjo Paterson, have become an essential part of the Australian literary tradition.

Born in a tent on the Grenfell goldfields in 1867, Lawson could well remember the roaring days of the gold rush and the life of pioneers.
How does a young woman from suburban Melbourne become America's public enemy number one?

Was this a mistake? Or has the elusive Gaby declared cyberwar on the US?
