"After an Australian patrol officer commits suicide on a remote New Guinea island in 1959, five witnesses are called to a government inquiry.

Informed by Randolph Stow’s experiences, Visitants is an original, astonishing investigation of colonialism."--Publisher's website

In The Land's Meaning, John Kinsella brings together selected works of one of Australia's finest modernist poets.
