    I first read these 2 books in my early teens and again in my twenties. I read them now another twenty years on. Every time I am swept up in the world Witi describes. I love the way he relates his descriptions to nature. No complicated plots here - just the simplicity and ordinariness of life in 1970s east coast NZ.

    I read Tangi first and Whanau some six months later.
