    '...Message Stick is a collection of poems and short stories that defies the expected. Drawing from the contemporary, traditional and urban life experiences of established and emerging writers, Message Stick is an Aboriginal view of black culture, past, present and future. It is not manufactured dialogue by those 'who think they know', it is the many and diverse voices of Aboriginal Australia.' (Backcover)
