Cowrie by Cathie Dunsford

Book Description

Cowrie visits Hawaii, which her ukulele-playing grandfather had left decades earlier. There she visits her extended family and Mt Kiluea, travelling around the island in an old pick-up truck called Hone. As she enters the crater of Kiluea we are drawn into the very centre of the earth, with Cowrie and her cousin, Paneke as our guides. Sensual and sexual language bring the earth to life, and Cowrie too, as she tests the limits of her endurance and explores her own erotic connection with the earth. The mythology of the islands comes through the descriptions of natural and cultural events. One can taste the tropical fruit, the fish cooked in banana leaves and coconut, and smell the sweet fresh ginger.
