The Many-Coloured Land: A Return to Ireland

By Christopher Koch


As a youngster, Christopher Koch was intrinsically aware of his mixed and tremulous heritage.

Many years later it was in Tasmania that the young Christopher grew up, and here that he began his lifelong quest to better understand his ancestral roots, a quest which rears its head in his travels around Ireland in the 1990s.
