MAHOE LEAVES

Author(s): MOSER THOMAS

History | Rare & Collectable

MAHOE LEAVES by Thomas Moser, hardback with a dust jacket, good condition, ex library with usual library stamps. Moser's "Leaves" are, in fact, warm hearted sketches involving supposedly ficticious Maori characters in situations reflecting the effects of European civilisation and "missionary influence". These were gathered during a posting as Private Secretary to Govenor Eyre. Culinary delights introduced include ko paki paki - corn soaked in water until it putrifies - and a thorty foot canoe filled with baked rice and sugar mixed with a paddle, the centre point of a hangi. This is a worthwhile addition to any collection of early New Zealand material.
