By: David Hair Location: FIC HAI Genre: New Zealand Fantasy
Ghosts of Parihaka isbook 5 in David Hair’s popular Aotearoa
series, and it’s the penultimate instalment.
This is New
Zealands story, it is our Mandela, it is our Ghandi, it is our place of
greatest shame and deepest pride. Parihaka is a place all New Zealanders should
know about and thankfully now David Hair has written a story for everyone to
learn why Parihaka matters. It is not a huge epic like Season of the Jew- it is
youth fiction that makes the story alive- and somehow he uses Larnach castle as
a base- maybe it has something to do with the ghosts of Larnachs past. The story circles around a ghostly theft of our founding document- the Treaty of Waitangi.
This is one
David Hair book I am really keen to get stuck into, it tells the story of
Waitangi, of Parihaka and Larnachs castle, it even has a go at telling us about
Richard Pearce- it tells our story!
