The Home of the Winds describes and illustrates the building and fortification of a pa on a site chosen for its defensibility. The ancient lore of the Maori people, their beliefs and skills, their affinity with nature are revealed in an authentic tale of pre-European days.
When the people of a Maori kainga decide that they need a meeting house built on their spacious marae, the oldest tohunga sees to it that a house of wonder is made for them.

"Tirohanga o Mua began life as a catalogue for a retrospective exhibition by Robert Jahnke at Te Manawa Art Gallery in Palmerston North in 2010.
