This book is for the bone diggers and the song carriers — those interested in the roots, the old connections, and for those who have listening ears. It explores the relationships that unfold on the West Coast of Te Wai Pounamu New Zealand, in the mid-19th century as isolated, difficult to access parts of the country are entered by European explorers guided by local Māori. What happens here in Te Wai Pounamu, when folk from worlds which recognise and read the sensuous, talk with birds, memorise land routes in their bodies in chant and song, encounter folk who do not even observe the changing position of the moon in the sky each day, and who are concerned primarily with “getting somewhere and accumulating something”.
