Description - Johnny James: And Other Verses by Dave Morrell
Since moving to a remote cattle station in Western Australia's far north-west as a young child, the red dirt of the Kimberley has coloured Dave Morrell's blood and filled his life with adventure. This collection of his bush poetry and memoirs portrays a raw and untold history of his home.Often with humour and sometimes full of emotion, Dave combines his own recollections of life in the outback with stories of white colonisation, Aboriginal displacement and tight-knit community bonds. Herein, through poetry and prose, Dave shines light on the immeasurable good of this remote community, as well as the darkness that lurks, often unspoken, on the edges of its history.These are stories of the real Kimberley, by the Broome vet Dave Morrell.
