Reviews

"The book is more than just a database; it is a journey into the mind of the culture and we are indebted to the authors and publishers for it." --James Ritchie, Waikato Times

"It is rich reading for the variety and poetry of sayings, the cultural philosophy and tribal history they encapsulate, and the relevance of past words to the present." --Jane McRae, NZ Books
