Sarah Lark,D. W. Lovett: Song of the Spirits
Lark recounts...the sometimes peaceful, sometimes uneasy relationship between the Maori natives and the pakeha the colonists. And the land, which can be rocky and formidable and also breathtakingly beautiful, is as much a character as anyone else." Historical Novel Society New Zealand, 1893: William Martyn is better educated and more cultivated than the other men breaking their backs searching for gold near Queenstown. William is the son of landed Irish nobility, and he comes to town ready to invest in the best equipment. On his search for supplies, he encounters spirited and beautiful young Elaine O Keefe, who promptly falls in love with him. He is captivated by her charms until Kura, Elaine s half-Maori cousin, comes to visit. William succumbs at once to Kura s exotic beauty and free-spiritedness, and tension develops not only between the two cousins but also between the colonial settlers and their Maori neighbors."
Books of speeches are rarely published as a compendium of work by one person. After Song of the Spirits free ebook Words is unique in Australian publishing by virtue of its scale and range of subjects, and that all the speeches are the work of one eye and one mind: former Prime Minister Paul Keating. Each speech has been conceptualised, contextualised and crafted by Paul Keating. Subject to subject, idea to idea, the speeches are related in a wider construct, which is the way Paul Keating has viewed and thought about the world. The speeches reveal the breadth and depth of his interests - be they cultural, historical, or policy-focused - dealing with subjects as broad as international relations, economic policy and politics. Individual chapters range from a discussion of Jorn Utzon's Opera House through to the redesign of Berlin, the history of native title, the challenge of Asia, the role of the monarchy, to the shape of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2, and more. After Words contains an analytic commentary on Australia's recent social and economic repositioning, in the minds of many, by its principal architect.
