Summary

“For over five decades, Megan has been observing and recording her adopted Tasmanian environment in prose and poetry. In 1961 Megan crossed the Indian Ocean that now divides two continents that once were part of the great Gondwana landmass. In her arms she carried two restless children. In her head she carried remembered voices from her childhood, and in her mind’s eye she carried wild South African landscapes”--Back cover.
