              Tides of Kawhia: 2020 (Paperback, New edition)

              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.

With their famous humour and big-hearted personalities, the TVNZ and Netflix reality TV stars are changing the way we think about death and gri...ef. Life as a Casketeer reveals how Francis and Kaiora grew up in families that had few possessions but were rich with love and tikanga, and how they came to work in their often misunderstood profession. It's also a book about the Maori world view and traditional funeral customs. The Tipenes make death feel less mysterious and life feel more precious. But most of all, Life as a Casketeer is a love story - for whanau, for culture and for each other. It is full of joy and sorrow, tears and laughter.
