From the inside cover: "Some of the poems express his people's reverence for their land and the result of its invasion by outsiders from Colonial times to the present. Creation themes abound in symbol, story and cultural rememberings in which the animals and plants have their significance. In a word, this collection of poetry is about Maurice Kenny's home."
