Steven - I hope you can get the book locally - I think you should as Bill Bryson is American (from Iowa I think???) though lived in England for a while. All his books are humourous and easy to read, and on a great variety of topics. Hope you enjoy "Down Under" anyway.
Awww looked in our catalogue under his name and we don't have Down Under!!! We do have tons of copies of his "A Short History about nearly Everything" and "In a Sunburned Country" I think I might read the second one though, seems to be talking about Aussi...even talks about your lost Prime Minister!

I wonder if it's issued under another title over there? It happens sometimes. It certainly sounds like the right book - not many tell the tale of a country losing their Prime Minister on the beach!! Give it a go.

The "Short History ..." is good too. As is the one about walking the Appalachian Trail. And the one about England... and the one about the English language ..... They are ALL good!
