Homestead is the story of the last large lease of Maori Land (named Waimarama) and the two families who inhabited it a century apart. The pivotal characters of these families are Muller from the 1840s and Steven a boy from the Great Depression.
A naturalist, reader and thinker, Muller, in parallel with Darwin, believed he had solved the outstanding conundrum of biodiversity. This prompted him to travel to Europe and air his theory.
Steven, a century later, finds a further parallel in his life's experiences to those of Muller. They both indulge their insatiable curiosity and allow chance to shape their lives.
Hugh Mason's seventh novel is a grand adventure of the mind and spirit and his most substantial and inspiring work to date - a most satisfying read.
