Review quote

"With a voice made in Heaven, Ronnie Summers is a wild island boy who overcame racism and the bottle to find power in his ancestry. Here is a story of a Tasmanian Aboriginal elder who is full of life and music and bonded to the land of his birth. Deeply committed to motivating a rising generation, Ronnie s story provides a rich perspective for Australians who are interested in Tasmania s past, present, and future Aboriginal cultural identity." Bob Brown, Australian senator"
