Listing Detail Tabs

Salt River Songs is Sam Hunt's latest collection of poems, written over the last few years in his house that sits amongst a grove of totara trees on the Arapaoa, one of the five main salt rivers of the Kaipara Harbour. As always, his unflinchingly honest, elegiac and moving poems roam around familiar themes of family, friends and lovers, and the challenges of ageing and mortality. Salt River Songs will also have an introduction from writer and journalist Colin Hogg, an old friend of Sam's and, appropriately, will be published to mark Sam's 70th birthday.Author BiographyBorn at Castor Bay in 1946, Sam Hunt is one of New Zealand's bestknown and most celebrated poets. He has been touring and performing his poems for over 50 years, and has published many collections of his poems, from Between Islands in 1963, to his most recent, Knucklebones: Poems 1962-2012. Twelve years ago, Hunt moved onto the Arapaoa River of the Kaipara Harbour - 'five / gunshots from humanity'. Hunt has received major accolades for his services to poetry, including a QSM, a CNZM and, in 2012, the Prime Minister's Poetry Award.
