Summary

"These exceptional stories about people, places and irreverent events will make you laugh and cry. They are both fantastic and true-to-life. Humorous, raw and interspersed with Nyoongar language and imagery, you will love the warmth, frailty and strength of the many wonderful characters like Uncle Jacko, the wool pickers Barney and Bill, Brickwall Jackson, Uncle Dollar and Aunti Flo to name just a few."--BOOK JACKET.
