Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

This is the joyful yet heartbreaking true story of four friends who walk a 21- day pilgrimage from the sea to the source of Melbourne's Yarra River. There is no path for most of the way, but offers of campsites and boats, and free access to private lands, illustrates the generosity shown to pilgrims even in modern times. Maya Ward's lyrical exploration of her river as it winds through the city and the wild is a revelation, a testament to the fact that the greatest of worlds are often at our doorstep. Its author understands the power of the natural world to transform lives, and writes about the connection between a river and the self with humility, humour, and a clear-headed wisdom. The telling of her own journey and that of her fellow walkers is seamlessly woven together with ecological and cultural history, the revelation of the pilgrim's path and the unknowable depth of Aboriginal myth. Through trekking this Wurundjeri Songline, this ancient, ever-renewing river, she discovers rich possibilities of belonging, and shares how a river can nourish the passion and resilience required to transform our world.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A rich and raw account of walking the Yarra River 12 de noviembre de 2013
Por Ruchira Talukdar - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
Through her debut novel Maya Ward cuts a path of discovery, one which takes us to the heart of Melbourne's waterway - the Yarra River. By hiking from the sea to the source of the river, Maya and her friends experience and reimagine the Yarra back into their lives, and back into the society they came from.

Through vivid descriptions of and by narrating stories of all the places they walk through, Maya breathes life and meaning back into the River's world - a world which has been fragmented by human progress and whose significance has been lost to the society which lives around its edges.

The account of each day is as rich with activities and places as those of the nights are replete with sensitive realisations, of fathoming the unobvious.

The depth and clarity with which Maya has interwoven many journeys and themes into one story is highly commendable. The Comfort of Water is at once a story of four river pilgrims progress along the Yarra, a journey through ones own multi-layered mind, and a slow walk through time back to when the Yarra was borne into human imagination through the first creation stories.

A specially inspiring read for those deeply interested in place based writing.
