The Tapu Garden of Eden by Robert Philip Bolton

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Described by the publishers of 'The Whalerider' as " enchanting story...with the same whimsical appeal as Witi Ihimaera's The Whalerider", this moving New Zealand story, ideal for young people but equally popular with adults, is set in an old man's garden on the slopes of Mount Eden in Auckland, New Zealand. It's a story, for young and old, of how the young learn from the old and the old from the young. It explores the deep and land-based spiritual values of New Zealand's Maori people, their relevance to modern urban Maori, and how the past continues to influence the present. An ideal gift.
