Summary
This book provides an insightful look at the history and lives affected by two rivers in two different continents: the Darling in Australia and the Dordogne in France. Egan cleverly draws parallels between the two seemingly unrelated landscapes, exploring the people and their culture. He retraces the travels of our most loved literary figures, including Henry Lawson and Banjo Patterson, questioning: How much is our culture affected by our landscape? Egan's love of all things French is only equal to his love of his homeland and, in Of Rivers, Baguettes and Billabongs, Egan proves it is possible for a man to love and be true to two countries in different hemispheres. Of Rivers, Baguettes and Billabongs will appeal to anyone interested in food, history, literature, poetry, and travel. Don't be surprised if this becomes a baby boomer travel guide as inspired readers take to retracing Egan's fascinating exploration of what shapes us
