‘Of this land I’ (from my Ngātoiorangi and the Coming of Fire series) is inspired by the wondrous geothermal areas surrounding the place where I grew up. These areas included the rumbling steam bore fields of Wairakei; the geysers, hot springs, bubbling mud pools and silica terraces of Orakei Korako and Rotorua; the iconic crater chronicling the devastating Mount Tawarewa eruption of 1886; and the three active volcanoes (Ruapehu, Ngauruhoe, and Tongariro) at the southern end of the Taupo Volcanic Zone in New Zealand. Despite their intriguing structure these landmarks are a potent reminder of the terrifying power of nature.
