AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This anthology features the works of 19 authors and four contributing artists who bring together 'personal histories, poetry, biographies, autobiographies and social commentary, all from the heart. Words about love, family, pain, memories and hope, with a common thread of family hardship but survival amongst strong family ties. ...Many of the works in this anthology are tributes to family members, mothers, fathers, grandparents, children, brothers and sisters, talking about what they lessons they taught and their life experiences...The land and country also provides a common theme for the contributors.'

Notes

  • Dedication: This book is dedicated to...our families for their love, patience and understanding, to those who have gone before us, today's generations and those who will follow after us. The Past, Present and the Future. We also dedicate this book to all the people whose stories are yet to be told... Hopefully this may inspire them to write.

    We also want to thank Jan Teagle Kapetas who looked deep inside our hearts and minds giving us the inspiration to make our dreams come true; who shared with us the long, humorous, frustrating hours, making a big difference, setting our words free, flowing onto many pages about our lives and history.

Works about this Work

BlackWords: Writers on Country Anita Heiss , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: The BlackWords Essays 2015; (p. 3)

In this essay Heiss not only illustrates the breakdown of stereotypes of what Indigenous relationship with land is, but she showcases the wealth of literature being penned nationally by writers who express the diversity of their experiences of 'country'. Whether it be their traditional lands, places they have chosen to relocate to; those that they or their families were removed to; places that people call home and/or connect to; and those who embrace a physical landscape. An historical, social and political space that renders them specifically and culturally significant to individuals, families and community.
