Based on an exhibition at the National Museum of Australia, this compelling volume tells the story of four Victorian women—Lee Darroch, Treahna Hamm, Vicki Couzens, and Debra Couzens—who in 1999 decided to revive the 1800s cloak-making tradition of their people, who incised possum-skin cloaks with intricate designs representing clan identity and the natural world.
