Forgotten Corners - Essays in Search of an Island's Soul
 
(0 reviews)  

For the author, Pete Hay, home matters, in this case Tasmania. He might be descended from a Point Puer convict boy and be the son of a legend of Australia's 2/40th 'Tasmanian' Battalion, but he does not claim belonging to Tasmania as a birthright: "You don't inherit a place" he tells us, "you commit to it."

Pete Hay is pre-eminent among the guardians of Tasmania's island's spirit, his fierce intelligence and compassionate heart resisting those who would ravage, exploit and appropriate its natural beauty, cultural creativity and fraught history for profit and power. Animals and ancestors, people and plants, the lost and the loved, the humus and the human, the artist and the artefact, the books and the birds, the sadness and the stillness, the past and the possible, the humour and the horror all find voice in 'Forgotten Corners'.
