Dorothea Mackellar

♥ ♥ ♥ Today's Awesome Woman is Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968) At only 19 years of age she wrote one of the most infamous Australian poems 'My Country'. The immortal line 'I love a sunburnt country' from the poem is used again and again to describe Australia, appealing to the sense of patriotism fostered by the war and post-war nationalism.
