Edge divas

Maori language musician Hinewehi Mohi features in Adventure Divas, a best selling book by US writer/editor turned intrepid documentarian Holly Morris. A few years back Morris traded in her desk job in order to scour the world for “women of action,” taking along a PBS film crew for the ride. The resulting series, Adventure Divas, profiled women from Cuba to New Delhi to Aotearoa. Morris interviewed an array of edgy divas including author Keri Hulme, PM Helen Clark, filmmakers Gaylene Preston and Sima Urale, and Mohi, who is described on the book’s dust-jacket as “reinvigorating her native culture for a new generation.” Adventure Divas was selected as an ‘Editor’s Choice’ book for 2005 by the New York Times, who praised it as “A delightful triangulation of adventure travel, telecommuting and self-reinvention… [Morris] can be hilarious.”  (2005)
