AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'For many of us, finding a community or a place where we feel we belong is at the heart of our lives. Unexpected events, through choice or circumstance, can move us away from our roots. We leave our hometowns, we are torn from what we love, we build new lives in foreign countries. And through it all, whether we acknowledge it or not, we are searching for the feeling of "belonging" that nourishes our souls.

In this collection of beautifully written stories, fifteen writers from Australia and around the world reveal their own search to find where they belong. Experiences range from riding the rapids of the Grand Canyon, to living in a remote village of Tibet, to being confronted with sadness and loss, to being a member of the Stolen Generation.'
