Australian bits of history, lives, and legends are discussed first, and each bit that is discussed is then followed up by the verse.
I like Cowboy Poetry, and this is very similar, although Australia has a very distinctive style of its own. Each poem had a background story told first and that's different - a bit casual, but the introductory information did add to the poems.
The poems didn't always rhyme, so maybe that's why the title says Ballads.
The audio book isn't perfect, but it's very good and I learned some interesting and new things about Australia along the way. At times the stories told stirred emotions and even now, a few days later, a couple of the stories have stuck and are still turned over in my mind - the book tells about people and lives. And struggles and death too.
It's good to remember people - even if we didn't know them personally.
