'Culture and identity, suffering and the triumph of survival thread their way through the short stories, poems, legends, song lyrics, essays and commentaries in this... anthology of Aboriginal writing.
Representing a range of regional and cultural differences, age groups and social circumstances, it is a testimony to the importance of the past in the construction of a better future.' Source: Publisher's blurb
'Charmaine Papertalk-Green’s poetry is intense and direct. She says what she means and is willing to take on issues that affect her community from outside and from within. She writes of Indigenous loss, but also about tensions and conflicts among her own people. For Papertalk-Green, culture isn’t in the past, it’s all around in the here and now.'
