Travelling alone in little known parts of Japan, Nancy Phelan discovered a country unsuspected by tourists, untouched in its deepest essentials by western influence. Her wanderings took her to the home of fisherfolk, rice-growing peasants, humble railway officials, Zen Masters and Shingon Buddhists; to the world of haiku, Noh, Tea and Flowers; to the bleak islands north of Hokkaido and the warm rural peace of Kyushu.
Australian writer who travelled the world. Her travels to Japan provided the material for Pillow of Grass (1969), in which she reaches Nagasaki's "bleak, scruffy, sterile" Peace Park.
