During his travels he had many encounters with Aboriginal situations; some tragic, some strange but mostly humourous. He has now written of some of these experiences in verse and the reader cannot help but be entertained by his brisk and artful prose poems. To add to the reader's enjoyment, he esplains how and why each poem was written which, by setting the scene, encompasses the reader into the story.' Source: Publisher's note.
