Inangahua Gold


This historical novel, set in the 19th century, plaits together tough as flax-root narrative prose and poetic imagery to tell a timeless love story. An Irishman, an Englishman, and a Maori guide traverse the Southern Alps. Kathleen Gallagher captures each travellers experience of the wilderness with a uniquely enriching narrative.
