"The glittering stretch of snake-like highway beckons escape. To a rhythmic blues backbeat, it leads from northern New South Wales to inner-city Brisbane, continually circling back. Woven through the road narrative are poems whose humour, cant and unshakable politics express the poet's experience as a Nyoongah living in a white world."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

In the 1990s Mudrooroo went ot live on a property in Northern New South Wales owned by his friend Burnum Burnum. There he devoted himself fully to writing and this volume of poems was written in the bush. There was quite a lot of travelling between Brisbane, Sydney and this is born out by the title. These are road poems.
