This memoir spans a century of New Zealand life - public and private. It is a candid personal account of events of national significance as Elizabeth Orr - and this country - struggles to determine who we are and what we stand for. Elizabeth touches on issues of class, race, sex,... suburbia, politics, equality and ultimately spirituality and the environ ment, with disarming frankness. While we recognise her world, it is often un expected as she moves from Khandallah to a women's refuge; from ivory towers to the lives of women meatworkers; from academia to dry stone walling in Otaki. With Elizabeth, we come to a richer under standing of how we have become the New Zealanders we are, and the importance of the ongoing need to campaign for social justice.
