The wisdom of Te Wharekaihua recalling days from his youth.  He was born some two hundred years ago and was about ten years old when the first Pākehā explorers began to settle in the top of the North Island at the beginning of the 19th century.  As such he was one of the last of the generation who knew the ways of the old life.  Knucklebones, string, hand and stick games, skipping, bush swings, riddles, stilts, swimming and water games are some of the pastimes he described and are illustrated in this book.  Postage-free postage within New Zealand.
