    Point and laugh if you must, but I need to know...

    Why does everyone refer to Taggerung as (The) Taggerung? On my copy it has no "the", and in all of my other books' book lists there isn't one either. Did BJ consider this a mistake? I'm confused.
    <center>Fare you well upon your journey,
    To the bright lands far away,
    Where beside the peaceful rivers,
    You may linger any day.
    In the forests warm at noontide,
    See the flowers bloom in the glades,
    Meet the friends who've gone before you,
    To the calm of quiet shades.
    There you'll wait, O my beloved,
    Never knowing want or care,
    And when I have seen my seasons,
    We will walk together there.</center>

    The British copies have "The Taggerung" while the ones in the US have just "Taggerung", I believe. "(The) Taggerung" is a handy comprimise (sp?), though many just refer to it as "Tagg" or whatever, as it's shorter.
