              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.

              In this sequel to 'No one went to town,' the Tarrants are clearing land near Piopio in the King Country, New Zealand. At first the conditions are too tough for May and her mother, who spend the winter in Te Kuiti, then land rush town. Staying at the Grand Hotel is exciting, and ...May sees her first moving picture and is invited to a Maori wedding. In the spring she travels by coach to Piopio and out to the Paemako farm by coach and sledge. Now that she is nine, May is old enough to turn the grindstone, milk the cows and ride a horse - and old enough to get caned for disobeying the teacher at her bush school. She becomes a proper King Country girl. 'Black Boots and Buttonhooks' is a true story, based on the recollections of the author's family.

              Sailors, Saints & Sinners: the Hall Family in Hull and New Zealand, 1795-1907 (Paperback)

              An escape on foot from captivity in France in 1810, the attempted murder of a young wife in New Zealand and a heroic death in the Transvaal in 1880 are just three of the extraordinary stories recounted in Sailors, Settlers & Sinners. Beginning in the port of Hull in East Yorkshir...e during the French Revolution, it traces the life of George Hall, a mariner captured during the Napoleonic Wars, the maritime careers of his two sons, George and Thomas, at the highpoint of Britain's expansion as a world power and, finally, life in the new colony of New Zealand, where his youngest son, John, becomes prime minister. Private letters and personal journals bring to life the hopes and aspirations, trials and despair of this rich parade of characters and their stories of adventure, false identity, primitive surgery, adultery, drug abuse, high political achievement and low political manoeuvring. Settings and scenes range from parties in the port of Hull to the plague-ridden streets of Constantinople, from fur-trapping in Vancouver to high-country sheep farming and early government in New Zealand. Packed with incident and telling detail and lavishly illustrated with portraits, photographs, documents and maps, Sailors, Settlers & Sinners will appeal to anyone interested in family, maritime and political history. The author, Moira Taylor (nee Hall), is the great-great-granddaughter of Captain George Hall who escaped from France in 1810 and the great-granddaughter of Captain Thomas Williamson Hall, who settled as a pastoralist in Timaru, New Zealand.
