An evocative seasonal journal set in rock-and-tussock country in Central Otago – a rich blend of natural history and folklore, fact and fiction, featuring the New Zealand falcon, ‘the wildest thing in our skies’. Meet a mysterious itinerant farmhand, thoroughly tuned into his environment, who is able to fly with falcons.


‘. . . he can find and extol beauty in a weta or a woolshed. His love for the land is infectious.’
North and South

‘. . . natural history with an uncommon and lively control over story-telling techniques . . . swift enjoyment.’
