This book brings together the reflective poems, b/w photos and drawings of 27 people who, in one epic day, cycled round the shores of two degraded iconic Canterbury lakes – Wairewa / Forsyth and Te Waihora / Ellesmere.

The journey began and ended with overnight stays on local marae – Wairewa, Little River and Ngāti Moki, Tuamutu.

In both places deep stories were told of relationship and kaitiakitanga (guardianship) with these waterways, the suffering and destruction wrought by colonisation, and the commitment and hopeful action being take to restore and heal them.

“As we seek for a healthier and more just future for all peoples and for the community of life in which we live, it is vital that our kaupapa is holistic.”
Mark Gibson from the Introduction.
