Listen to a song from the album
 
Ulick wrote a musical history of the struggles, joys, comradeship - and lots more - surrounding the building of the Snowy Mountains Scheme.
As Ron Wills wrote "His songs reflect tragedy, comedy and in some cases bitter irony. They have the character that goes to make true folk lore and the folk song".
Ulick with the help of Anne wrote a musical history of the Snowy Mountains i.e. the building of the mighty Snowy Mountains Scheme and the many nationalities that worked together (whilst not knowing how to speak English), thus understanding that the creation of the Snowy Mountains Scheme was also the beginning of multiculturalism in Australia. These were breaking days!.
