              He considered himself an ordinary, uneducated Mori man but Joseph Harawira, QSM, was a tireless worker who became spokesperson for an organisation called SWAP (Sawmill Workers Against Poisons). SWAP relentlessly presented their evidence to authorities, for work place poisoning ca...using ill health, for thirty years until those authorities finally listened. Post-colonial New Zealand had seen huge developments in industry and farming alongside extensive use of toxic chemicals in forestry, polluting the land, waterways and poisoning people. Joe mainly worked at the Whakatne sawmill between 1963 and 1992. The two main chemicals of concern were PCP (pentachlorophenol) and dioxin. Still working and in declining health, Joe had been looking for the 'right' person to record his journey. A series of unexpected events led to his choice of author, a retired Pkeh woman, a stranger with a Master's degree, with whose partner he had recently reconnected through work. Joe grieved the loss of mentorship by Mori elders which left some Mori men feeling disconnected, sometimes resulting in violence, suicide or gang affiliation. He blamed some of this on poisons and understood there were also other factors. He wanted today's young men to see that they too could believe in something, educate themselves and gain respect through their efforts. Joe felt keenly that even though there was some recognition of chemical poisoning in male sawmill workers, women cleaners and wives who dealt with contaminated clothing and gardens were, and still are, ignored by authorities. Ironically, sawmill work was not his first choice but events conspired to place him in a position where he could be spokesperson for the important issue: chemical poisoning of the land and of the people.

              The fifties in New Zealand were glory days. It was a carefree time for children, whose parents were finally happy that the war was over. Everyone worked together to rebuild their lives and looked to the future. I helped my father when I could, spraying the orchards, harvesting, m...aking hay and I attended a country school and mixed with local Maori families. Aged eleven I went to Boarding School in Auckland. It was a dramatic change and, along with my regular studies, I learnt to be independent and to think for myself. Upon leaving school, my parents had tertiary education in mind for me; I had in mind joining the workforce. My parents conceded and I left school with the intention to go farming. I worked on differing types of farms in New Zealand, followed by a stint in Australia, working on broadacre farming techniques. When I was sufficiently qualified, I began work with my father on the family farm in the Waikato region. After a period on the farm, I found that I was unable to work amicably with my father and I took my leave. For two years I crewed on two different yachts in the Pacific and Indonesian waters. This was a period of adventure and personal development which has provided many of the anecdotes I have related here. When I returned to the family farm, it was obvious that my father and I still could not work together. I left the farm for good and headed to the city to seek whatever came my way. I worked at several casual jobs until I could afford to travel and I flew to London with the promise of a job there. A new beginning, another book.

              Why This Book Is Unique This book reveals the paradise-like splendor found in the 7,107 islands of the Philippines and the character, nature, values, and customs of Filipinos. This book also outlines an uncomplicated but in-depth exploration of Filipino grammar to make it easier ...and simpler for the learner to form word and sentence constructions. The lexicon section of this book contains synonyms, correlations, similarities, and antonyms, making it more comprehensive and multifaceted than the other Filipino dictionaries in the market today. Also added in it are motivational topics and cautionary alerts. Previously and currently, most of the explanations and illustrations presented in this book have hardly been covered in other Filipino dictionaries written by other authors. The highlighting of the Spanish and English words in this dictionary can help increase proficiency or, at the least, familiarity with four languages, Tagalog, Ilocano, Spanish, and English, not to mention Bicolano, Cebuano, Ybanag, and Gaddang vocabularies that are added into this book. This book is an essential language reference book for all the libraries in the world. It also serves as a handy translation aid for foreigners doing business in the Philippines and for the foreign embassies that are based in the Philippines, as well as religious and medical missionaries, charitable institutions, language translators, tourists, foreign students enrolled in the Philippines, expatriates that settle in the Philippines, and anyone interested in learning about the Philippines and Filipino languages.
