These are compelling life-experiences from migrants and refugees who have made New Zealand their home. The stories are as diverse as the nationalities of those who talk about their lives ... Africa, Asia, Europe, the Pacific Islands and North and South America. Gripping, emotion-charged, tender, amusing, the stories make a great read. See through the eyes of people who have fled traumatic circumstances, or chosen to make a new life in a safe and beautiful country, New Zealand is shown in a new and heart-warming way.
