Fascination with the interplay of people and place inspired the editors to bring together New Zealanders from different backgrounds and disciplines to explore some of the stories and sites of conflict and change to be found amongst our sacred, historic, rural, urban and coastal landscapes. All of the writers in making our place engage with the underlying question: are there better ways to reconcile the tensions inherent in our struggles with the land and each other?
