Reviews of the book

“This anthology beautifully tells the stories from the perspective of people who live on the land, and their connection to Space in this most important of astronomical areas.” – Brad Tucker, Research Fellow, Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics, ANU

“The many voices of Dark Sky Dreamings speak to the canopy of stars that web our memories, carbon cells and spirit, reminding us that we share the same wide sky.” – Tamryn Bennett, Artistic Director, Red Room Poetry
