"Six chapters explore the relationship of places and languages, culture and family, geology and myth, in a poet's imaginations. At the heart of the book is a journal of the writer's year. Lyrical, wise, meticulously observant, often humorous, Clarke records the experience of living and working on the land, observing the world from a particular place, the continuity and remaking of the source."--Jacket." ;
