At four years of age Erik emigrated from Britain to the island State of Tasmania with his non-conforming family. After living in the woods the family continued to home educate, helping to pioneer the home education movement in Australia. What followed was a long personal journey to find a place in a society undergoing rapid change. Intense religious experiences and hard edged political activism play out against a backdrop of ongoing conflict over the preservation and destruction of wilderness in one of the world's special places. This gives a unique insider perspective on alternative education, nature and spirituality, social activism, and national identity. Often humorous, sometimes tragic, this is a very personal story of engaging with public life, about finding the divine in odd places, about social conflict, and about finding in the end those things that hold us together. It is about the strange ways that love finds us. It is a story of finding home.

About the Author:

At four years of age Erik emigrated from Britain to the island State of Tasmania with his non-conforming family. The family lived in the woods for a time then continued to home educate, helping to pioneer the home education movement in Australia. At fourteen Erik transitioned to formal education in years eleven and twelve before leaving home to attend University, where he became an environmental activist. This, coupled with an early conversion to Christianity, gave him a unique perspective on religion, environmentalism, identity and spirituality. Erik is a full time public servant working for Fair Trading. He lives in Tasmania with his wife Jennifer and two young children. His many interests include a home orchard, bushwalking and writing.
