The Walking Stick Tree

In this remarkable memoir, Trish Harris writes about growing up with acute arthritis - about pain and loss, identity and living creatively. With illustrations by Sarah Laing, and perceptive essays, this book captures a deeply moving experience of knitting a body and soul together. Finding a quality New Zealand book on the experience of disability is like finding water in a desert; eagerly consumed and leaving me wanting more. - Robyn Hunt It is often said that the body is the house in which the true self dwells. Trish Harris' 'house' has arthritis written all over it, but her true self has expanded beyond its walls to embrace the universe. Her beautifully written memoir will bring hope to those living with disability, and encouragement to everyone. - Joy Cowley
