"Jack Charles exceptionally engaging, well-told story is all his own. He has us spellbound as we sit around his campfire. In many ways, too, it’s the story of Australia. Just not the one we’re used to hearing."
"Charles's story moves from the strength he found mastering pottery in jail to poignant recollections of life as a member of the stolen generations. He relates yarns from his white-washed existence, and sings a jaunty period song about how grand it was that the white man came."
