  1. :

    At last we have a collection of Aboriginal tales we may use with the blessings of the elders. And such delightful stories! An amazing book and a great resource!
    — Dr. Margaret Read MacDonald, an author, storyteller, and folklorist based in Kirkland, Washington, USA.

  2. :

    One of the most interesting and varied collections of Aboriginal stories I have seen… The stories have the unmistakable stamp of authenticity, and offer a great variety in themes and levels of complexity.
    — Dr. Gwenda Beed Davey, co-editor of the Oxford Companion to Australian Folklore and Honorary Research Associate, National Centre for Australian Studies, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
