Solus Urger Voyager is a powerful and moving poetry collection which stretches across the boundaries of skin colour, language, and religion to give a voice to the lives and experiences of ordinary Indigenous people. The poems embrace anguish, pride, and hope. They come from the woodlands and the plains, they speak of love, of war, and of the known and the mysterious, they strike the reader with wisdom, joy, and sadness, bringing us closer than ever before to the heart of urban Indigenous life.

He won the John Newlove award for poetry in 2019 and was nominated for the Archibald Lampman award in 2015 and 2019. His poetry has appeared in over 200 magazines in 16 countries.
