"The snapshots in this publication are clothed in the techniques of fiction. They contain a writer's view of Nillumbik through their awareness of and importance of setting, character and dialogue; syntax, metaphor and literary allusion. The writers have lovingly evoked the past and present, the ordinary and the extraordinary. They have sung their songs loudly and clearly and with their words have addressed Nillumbik's unique history and identity" - Foreword
