              The Parihaka Woman
                  

              The Parihaka Woman (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ihimaera, Witi

              There has never been a New Zealand novel quite like The Parihaka Woman. Richly imaginative and original, weaving together fact and fiction, it sets the remarkable story of Erenora against the historical background of the turbulent and compelling events that occurred in Parihaka d...uring the 1870s and 1880s. Parihaka is the place Erenora calls home, a peaceful Taranaki settlement overcome by war and land confiscation. As her world is threatened, Erenora must find within herself the strength, courage and ingenuity to protect those whom she loves. And, like a Shakespearean heroine, she must change herself before she can take up her greatest challenge and save her exiled husband, Horitana. Surprising, inventive and deeply moving, The Parihaka Woman confirms Witi Ihimaera as one of New Zealand's finest and most memorable storytellers.

              Pounamu Pounamu (Anniversary Ed) (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ihimaera, Witi

              This anniversary edition of Witi Ihimaera's Pounamu Pounamu celebrates the 40th year in print of one of New Zealand's most seminal works of fiction. When Pounamu Pounamu was published in 1972, it was a landmark occasion for New Zealand literature in many ways. It was the first ...work of fiction published by a Maori writer, it was the first collection of short stories that looked at contemporary Maori life and it launched the career of one of New Zealand's best-known authors. The Pounamu Pounamu 40th Anniversary Edition is a beautiful hardback collector's volume. It features a foreword by Dame Fiona Kidman and a commentary by Witi Ihimaera on each of the stories. In these author's notes Witi looks back to events from his own childhood that inspired Pounamu Pounamu and the experience of writing and launching the book as a young man in the early '70s. Also available as an eBook

              By Ihimaera, Witi

              "When Uncle Rangiora visits his sister and dances with her in the garden, she knows she has to visit the place where he died, and where he and other of his comrades from the Maori Battalion were buried during the Second World War. His sister is an old woman now, her husband is ev...en older, but that's not going to stop them from setting off across the world alone, to the great consternation of their children who wonder if they will ever get there and back"--Publisher information.

              The Thrill of Falling: Stories (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ihimaera, Witi

              All my life I think I've been trying to find it again, that clarity, as if all the world's air were rushing into me and filling my lungs to the brim. And that sense of defying gravity before the thrill of falling. In this richly imaginative and compelling collection of longer sto...ries, Witi Ihimaera ranges across an intriguing and surprising range of styles, subject matter and settings. A young Maori girl fights for a future in the grim reality of urban New Zealand; a fond nephew pays affectionate, humorous tribute to his glamorous aunt; a Kiwi rock diva faces her past in faraway London; Moby Dick is fabulously reincarnated in post-climate change Antarctica; a dying woman recalls the giant tortoises of the Galapagos Islands; a shy boy from the East Coast makes an extraordinary journey with his famous ancestor, Tupaea. In these profound, often funny, always memorable stories Ihimaera again defies the expected to reaffirm his place as one of this country's finest technicians and storytellers.

              Maori Boy: A Memoir of Childhood (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ihimaera, Witi

              This is the first volume of Witi Ihimaera's enthralling, award-winning memoir, packed with stories from the formative years of this much-loved writer. Witi Ihimaera is a consummate storyteller - one critic calling him one of our 'finest and most memorable'. Some of his best st...ories, however, are about his own life. This honest, stirring work tells of the family and community into which Ihimaera was born, of his early life in rural New Zealand, of family secrets, of facing anguish and challenges, and of laughter and love. As Ihimaera recounts the myths that formed his early imagination, he also reveals the experiences from real life that wriggled into his fiction. Alive with an inventive, stimulating narrative and vividly portrayed relatives, this memoir is engrossing, entertaining and moving, but, more than this, it is also a vital record of what it means to grow up Maori. Winner of the Ockham New Zealand Book Award 2016 for the General Non Fiction category.
