Te Kooti Arikirangi te Turuki, founder

brutal war, one which was to
shape New Zealand´s destiny.

Review quote

"A strange, compelling reimagining of a dark time in the history of New Zealand. Crow of Whareatua is a labour of love that evokes the birds, streams and trees of Te Urewera as vividly as the men who fought and died in Te Kooti's war." - Dylan Horrocks

"Forget any prejudices you might still harbour against comic books, this is one of the year's strongest New Zealand novels." - Iain Sharp Sunday Star Times
