An evocative seasonal journal in which the author explores his roots in the rock-and-tussock country of Central Otago. He uncovers all- that is curious and distinctive there, in a rich blend of autobiography folklore and natural history. Along the way he meets up with a mystical free spirit - the Lark - and together they strike up an engaging friendship.Woven throughout the narrative is an intimate portrait of New Zealans native falcon, karearea, the wildest thing in our skies. Whether soaring, gliding or attacking, our swiftest bird of prey is sovererign of our skies and yet little known and understood.Neville Peat is one of New Zealands finest writers, and in this delightful book combines his skill as an essayist and natural historian and his instincts and breadth of knowledge as a conservationist.
