              Through his fiction, non-fiction and international journalism, Maurice Shadbolt played a leading role in projecting New Zealand to the world throughout the second half of the 20th century. In Volume Two Philip Temple tells of Shadbolt's epic coverage of the W.B. Sutch spy trial, ...his journalistic probes into the Arthur Allan Thomas case and the Erebus disaster, and his involvement in protests against the 1981 Springbok rugby tour. He tells of Shadbolt's demolition of the myths surrounding the Gallipoli campaign with his ground-breaking play Once on Chunuk Bair and subsequent documentary work. He tells of Shadbolt's growing stature as a novelist which produced such works as the unique The Lovelock Version and culminated in his New Zealand Wars trilogy, begun with the now New Zealand classic, Season of the Jew. Philip Temple also concludes the story of Shadbolt's fraught personal life as, by the end, he had been married four times and been involved in many affairs. It is a fascinating but ultimately tragic story about a man who had become New Zealand's most well-known and controversial author.

              The little Kiwi is fast asleep in her burrow. A beam of moonlight shines right down into her burrow. She wakes, and realises it is time. Hurrying out into the night, she wakes each of her friends from their midwinter slumber.'Kia tere! Hurry!' she urges them. The little Kiwi lead...s her friends through the pingao and onto the beach. It is pre-dawn. They wait, and watch. As the moon slips away behind the hills, the constellation of Matariki rises for the first time, in the northeastern sky. This gentle tale about celebrating Matariki, the Maori New Year, finishes with an explanation of Matariki - it's origins, traditions and how it is celebrated today. The constellation is also shown, with the Maori names for each star. The text contains some simple words in Te Reo Maori alongside the English equivalent.
