This title is currently unavailable for purchase.

"An important and thought-provoking book. Bobbi Sykes is to be congratulated." Oodgeroo Noonuccal (Kath Walker) The impassioned voices here are many and diverse.

Bobbi Sykes is a rare and beautiful personality, one of those 'fighters and singers' whose voices and songs we are at last beginning to listen to. She and her compatriot writers are a new energising factor in the writing of the world." Judith Wright
