"Belonging, White avers, is one of the key characteristics that mark us as humans. And one way to satisfy longing is to discover a place to call home. But before that can happen we have to come to terms with it, establish the sort of harmonious relations that emerge and grow when based upon unstinting love, care and respect." - Brian Turner. How the land lies is a powerful and moving memoir. After an anxious childhood spent in a series of railway settlements in the post-War years, White kept moving through places, occupations and lives, slowly learning where and how he wanted to live. As he looks back on family stories, and the histories, both Pakeha and Maori, of the landscapes in which they took place, he elaborates ideas that will resonate with a wide readership 238 pages.
