An off-grid house on Aotea Great Barrier Island promises to fulfil one man’s dreams, until cracks start to appear.
Part Man Alone, part love story, Island Notes explores questions of belonging, loss and impermanence and whether the life, seas and forests of a wild island can offer a reconciliation with our past.
Award-winning science writer and advocate for the wilderness Tim Higham has written a memoir that draws inspiration from some of the great nature writers, while establishing his own distinctive and informed voice and a sense of place that could only be Aotearoa.

From the publishers who brought you Ockham-longlisted Towards Compostela by Catharina van Bohemen.
