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.

About the Author

Alf Taylor is a member of the Stolen Generations. He and his brother were removed from their family as infants and placed in the New Norcia Mission. Taylor only discovered his heritage when he left the mission at age sixteen and searched for his family.

As a young man, Taylor worked in the Perth and Geraldton areas as a seasonal farm worker, before joining the armed forces and living in several locations around Australia. Taylor and his wife had seven children, of whom only two survived. He began writing poetry when young, and started publishing it in the 1990s.
