    1 thought on “The Dreaming Land”

    1. Very well written (almost poetic) and absorbing memoir of growing up in rural towns in New Zealand's North Island. Edmond, the son of a school teacher father and poet mother, draws evocative portraits of landscapes and boyhood escapades during the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
