'We, that's me and m'brother Gordie, we was playing outside our house in Cromwell Street Leichhardt, not that the name of the street meant much to me until years later - we used to call it Cromie Street - it was twenty something years before I could even spell it let alone know who Cromwell was. We was playing in the street like most kids did back then, at least us little tackers pretty well oblivious to dangers that bothered our mum. From our point of view the only danger was from motor vehicles.' (Source: from Abstract)

    'It is estimated now that nearly five thousand Aboriginal authors have been published in Australia since the cultural impact of colonisation occurred. However this seems rare or vague knowledge to the outskirts of Australian literature. It seems this contribution by Aboriginal writers is somewhat limited to access or obtain for the general public who enjoy a good read, or seek an historical view point...'
