'Kerry Reed-Gilbert's work reflects the struggles and victories of the human condition from the perspective of a black woman growning up in Australia. Kerry's poetry is poignant, honest and reflects her truth with dignity. She challenges each one of us to reflect on our own humanity and or commitment to our own highest truth.' (Back cover)
'Life In Gadigal Country is the first anthology of writing published by Gadigal Information Service, and a tribute to the Gadigal peoples of Sydney.'
'The book is a collection of writings of some of the strongest political voices, by some of the most promising cotemporary writers, about some of the most significant issues that have faced the first peoples of the country known as Gadigal Country, since the process of colonisation began in 1788.'
