Notes

  • Dedication: There are many people to thanks for this cassette. To name them all would take a long time but a special thank you goes out to the Elders of New South Wales, who have kept the stories, and to Mrs Kelly, an Elder of the Mutti-Mutti people of Balranald who gave permission to retell a number of these stories.
  • Recorded live at the Eugene Gossens Hall, Sydney.
