              Aro-takaro are the 'face' of traditional Maori games. They are the iconic implements associated with indigenous games practices, rituals and protocols. A testament to their prolific ancient uses are the numerous games artefacts, vividly etched in millennia-old cave paintings, all... over Aotearoa/NZ. Aro-takaro were spiritually conceived from the environment by villagers and perfected as social and educational tools by tohunga, the intellectual giants of the day, known as Hohou-Rongo - revered games artisans and peace-makers. The Hohou-Rongo utilised aro-takaro as mechanisms for peace, enjoyment, social bonding and in education to make their tribespeople resilient and adaptive. Each of the 100 aro-takaro within this volume is illustrated, has a description of the materials it is made from and activities that it is synonymous with. The reader will immediately be able to visit their sacred forests, and with due reverence, identify resources with which to make aro-takaro. These artefacts are as diverse as parahirahi (games sandals) & pikipotae (peace headdresses), equipment for hakura & matamatarongo protocols ( peace dances) and ki (balls), pona (knots) and perepere (games pieces). Here then is a cultural resource which can link educationalists with some of the aro-takaro technologies, conservation practices and beliefs of our forebears.

              This is a lovely rhyming story that is a sequel to 'The Dog and the Mog', and tells more tales about Davey the Dog, Mavis the Mog and Bruce their owner. Camping is a quintessential way of holidaying everywhere, and many will be able to relate to some of the challenges that can ar...ise, especially with the weather! Davey the Dog and Mavis the Mog are going camping at the beach with Bruce and the family in the summer holidays. They plan on having heaps of fun and need to take lots of things to play with so there is plenty to do when they get there. Everything is packed in the car, they get to the beach and set up the camp. After tea and a walk, everyone piles into bed and off they go to sleep. But while they are sleeping it starts to teem with rain and when Bruce's dad gets up to go out to the loo, his feet hit water to discover they are flooded - it's true! So they have to clear the water and sit tight until morning. When they get up it is sunny and warm and they dry everything out that got wet. Even the flood, although frightening, does not stop them thinking that going camping is still the BEST holiday.

              I Thought We'd Be Famous is a line in the sand. It's a look back on my days pre chronic illness, and my new life of blood tests and cancer scares. It's about the dreams that rusted in the backyard and the ones I ended up living. It's about the guilt in my blood after escaping a l...ife of welfare and minimum wage. It's about the absurdity of trying to make sense of this broken society. It's about Channing Tatum and Edward Furlong and Chilli the Pomeranian and the teacher who beat us half to death and killing your landlord and sleeping with zombies and falling in love so hard you wake up concussed.

              This book is for those wanting to create vibrant, profitable and healthy food production systems. For the Love of Soil was written to communicate the often complex and technical know-how of soil in more digestible terms, with case studies from regenerative farmers, growers and... ranchers in Australasia and North America. I reveal what inspired these land managers to shift their thinking and what have been the results from a process of restoring the soil-gut-microbiome. We'll also explore the principles and tools so you can take actions to regenerate your own soil resource, no matter the scale.
