Description

A family emigrates from Scotland to New Zealand. What do they bring with them? What do they leave behind? The poems in this non-chronological collection tell the story of generations of a fictional family, from rope-makers in 18th-century Scotland, to shipboard migrants in the mid-19th century on their way to New Zealand, and finally a rope-climbing aerialist. This hand-bound volume features a hand-printed cover.
