When Bronwyn Huguet sails in the Rarotonga from Liverpool in 1946 with five-year-old Tristan to be reunited with her Australian husband Robert in Sydney, she does so with mixed feelings. Her husband has become a changed man. He carries a shameful secret from his wartime service in the Merchant Navy, which is gnawing away at his soul.

Studies of the relationship between living creatures and their

natural environment usually falter when human beings are

included among the “living creatures”. Many ecologists keep

humans out of the mix altogether.


In this compact book of observations and anecdotes, I have

tried to show how we, as human beings, cannot be subject

to the stern laws of ecology, even if we wanted to be.
