‘Within the pages of this crackling debut collection, Jazz Money guides us through the steps on how to make a basket, a learning seeped in a deep respect for country; her heart and veins, her soil and spirit.

I adore this book, and will cherish having learned from Jazz Money that it takes true love to make a great poem.’ Tony Birch.
