Uncle Herb’s Storytime | Comedy & Spoken Word
Uncle Herb has worked as a stockman, a drover and a labourer, but did not begin his writing career until in the 1980s, when he was around 50, when he sat down under a tree and began to write. Through his writing he tried to answer questions about his people’s past, and this resulted in several volumes of poetry, short stories and novels. Uncle Herb reads some of his favourites.
