Songlines, Stories from Yarrabah and beyond brings together lyrics, related commentary and images reflecting author Barry Cedric's work as a singer/songwriter and educator. Cedric, who hails from Yarrabah, in Goongandji country, Far North Queensland, takes us on a journey through songs from the 1980s to the present day. It's a journey rich with poetry, politics and poignant messages about life as an Indigenous person in Queensland and more broadly in Australia. The book is presented in four parts: The land and me are one, People of the future, Love letters, and Culture alive; and includes examples of Cedric's original artworks along with an archive of personal and historical photographs. It is a book, as Cedric explains, "to be shared and used as an educational, historical and teaching resource for schools, TAFE, universities, families and communities."

Songlines was produced with support from the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
