Postured as a book of journeys, this collection's main feature is a nine-part poem in which a housebound poet is taken away by an airship that pulls up at her kitchen window. Other poems explore the long journey of the early European settlers of New Zealand, notions of distance and belonging, and dislocation and constraint, but equally important are the love of the local and a deep sense of the metaphysical world that sustain the spirit.
