              Crammed with fascinating historical details, this novel introduces the reader to the enigmatic figure of Te Rau-paraha. In the late eighteenth century, Kawhia is the prosperous heart of the people of Ngati Toarangatira. But, beyond the borders ominous changes threaten to drive th...e iwi from their coastal stronghold. In the north, Nga Puhi acquire muskets, and to the east the Waikato tribes cast envious eyes on the bountiful wa-ters and forests of Kawhia. Into this mix the child Maui Potiki is born. He is later called Te Rauparaha ? a name that today ripples down the pages of New Zealand his- tory. The young Te Rauparaha uses his wits, courage and audacity to become a military strategist, accom-plished politician and tribal leader. Sharing his exploits is Te Rou Rou, born into slavery who, like the young man of rank, uses intelligence to improve his status in the often dangerous tribal life of the time. When simmering animosities between the inland peoples explode into all-out-war, hundreds of warriors are left on the battlefield. In Tides of Kawhia, deadly fights and ancient Maori ritual mingle with delicate poetry and an impetuous hot-blooded people, bringing to life a period of history and a society unknown to many.

Sometimes they are outrageously funny or weird, but nevertheless are true.You would think that anyone exposed to these events, that-cut-to the-bone, would preclude this anyone ever being able to overcome and live a half-decent life, without being a mental wreck.And yet Suzy does overcome, with divine assistance, when all other avenues and options had failed her. She shows others living her old life and circumstances that they too should not succumb but be overcomers like Suzy. Answers to YOUR real-life questions are here.This book should have appeal to anyone, male or female, rich or poor, secular or any religion; that whatever their circumstances are 'now' they too can fight their way out ofoppression and find their way to happiness.Counsellor's, those needing counselling, those who find unanswerable questions in their life and those looking for inspiration or to give inspiration need to take a leaf or two from Suzy's book"--Back cover.

              This book, has been written by an eclectic group of French and New Zealand writers and researchers, which grew out of a successful conference held in Le Quesnoy in 2008. The First World War ended for the New Zealand Division some kilometers east of the old walled fortress town of... Le Quesnoy in Northern France on 11 November 1918. The war had a cataclysmic impact on New Zealand which echoes to this day. It had even a greater impact on France which endured much of its countryside and towns being in turn occupied by the German imperial armies, and then devastated in the battles to force their withdrawal. The human cost was of a similar scale.
