Nga Ripo Wai | Swirling Waters

  • $2950

This multi-genre anthology in te reo Maori and English explores the uneven terrain of Kerikeri and its history, from the pa to the store, from the warrior to the gardener, from the chain-mail coat to the black singlet to the maori battalion tie pin, from the orchards to the river banks, from the airport to the Old Packhouse Market and the galleries. Here is a beautiful, undulating landscape of poems, ultra-short stories, interviews and historians from writers with a Kerikeri connection.

Including, Glenn Colquhoun, Fiona Kidman, Piet Nieuwland, Vivienne Plumb, Vaughan Rapatahana, Briar Wood and others. Here are fascinating strata of love and loss, community and division, nature and settlement. Here are the floods, the mountains, the dusty roads, the turbulent waters of the basin, the views from near and far. Here is Kerikeri, New Zealand's longest continually occupied joint Maori-European settlement.
