About this book

Neville Peat has been a New Zealand writer for over 50 years, and during his working life has visited many of the islands within Aotearoa's marine realm, from the tropics to Antarctica. This book is about these islands, including Stewart Island/Rakiura, Anchor Island in Tamatea/Dusky Sound, Kapiti Island and Tiritiri Matangi in the Hauraki Gulf. Further afield, the book also covers Ross Island in Antarctica, Enderby Island in the subantarctic Auckland Islands, the Chatham Islands and the New Zealand dependency of Tokelau. Presented in the order he encountered them, Neville Peat explores how these places contribute to New Zealand's national character, and their geography, nature and human history. These stories, at times interconnected, are a narrative of place and belonging that reflect New Zealand's relatively young nation – diverse, characterful, innovative, resourceful. Part memoir, part adventure travel, history and nature conservation, Home Is an Island is a fascinating, insightful book from one of the nation's most prominent authors.
