The Bolthole – A Novel of New Zealand
Paperback | English
THE FATES OF THREE tormented men, born as many eras apart, come together in a rock cave on the Coromandel peninsula of New Zealand — Tama of the Ngatei Hei, Billy Green in the days of gold, and Dr. Sababa from across the ocean — seeking revenge, discovering treasure, and searching for redemption. Inside The Bolthole, on a mossy platform, is the skull of a Maori chieftain, the silver button of a British Naval captain, and a greenstone club. Here their thrilling life and death stories of obsession begin by hurtling down the shoreline of the same beach, and end in the fierce battles that left the coastal sands white with bones.
Lawrence Winkler is an ancient physician, traveler, and natural philosopher. His molecules have migrated from medicine to manuscript. From compassion to passion, to view and document the world around him, in all its beauty and complexity. He lives on Vancouver Island with Robyn, tending their gardens and vineyards, and dreams.
