            "Both fiction and fact, this book is an exploration of the Battle of Orakau. During three days in 1864, 300 Maori men, women and children fought an Imperial army and captured the imagination of the world. The battle marked the end of the Land Wars in the Waikato and resulted in v...ast tracts of land being confiscated for European settlement. Instead of following the usual standpoint of the victors, this book takes a Maori perspective. It is centred around Witi Ihimaeras moving novella, Sleeps Standing, which views the battle through the eyes of a 16-year-old boy named Moet. Alongside the novella are non-fiction narratives from Maori eyewitnesses, together with images and a Maori translation by Hmi Kelly, further giving voice to and illuminating the people who tried to protect their culture and land. It is estimated that, at the height of the battle, 1700 immensely superior troops, well armed and amply resourced, laid siege to the hastily constructed p at Orakau. The defenders were heavily outnumbered with few supplies or weapons but, when told to submit, they replied: E hoa, ka whawhai tonu matou, ake, ake, ake! Friend, I shall fight against you for ever, for ever!"--Publisher information.

            A witty, illustrated ode to Stephen Fry's decades-long obsession with a man's most trusted accessory- the tie By the time he was fifteen, Stephen Fry owned more than forty ties. Inherited initially from a grandfather, matters turned more serious when he could afford to buy them b...rand spanking new. Stephen's collection now numbers well into the hundreds. And each tie - whether floral, fluorescent, football themed; striped or spotty, outrageous or simply debonair - tells a story. A tale of the garment itself - the shops, makers and designers - as well as of Stephen, his reasons for choosing it, whether an occasion or just a whim. Inspired by Stephen's hugely popular Instagram posts, this book will feature beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations and photographs to celebrate his expansive collection of man's greatest asset- the Tie, in all its sophisticated glory.
