9780099578413: Once Were Warriors

Alan Duff's groundbreaking first novel is one of the most talked about books ever published in New Zealand and now the basis of a major New Zealand film. This hard hitting story is a frank and uncompromising portrayal of Maoris in New Zealand society. It is a raw and powerful story in which everyone is a victim until the strength and vision of one woman transcends brutality and leads the way to a new life.

From the Inside Flap:

Once Were Warriors is Alan Duff's harrowing vision of his country's indigenous people two hundred years after the English conquest. In prose that is both raw and compelling, it tells the story of Beth Heke, a Maori woman struggling to keep her family from falling apart, despite the squalor and violence of the housing projects in which they live. Conveying both the rich textures of Maori tradition and the wounds left by its absence, Once Were Warriors is a masterpiece of unblinking realism, irresistible energy, and great sorrow.

From the Back Cover:

"A searing look at the urban subculture of New Zealand's native people." -- Toronto Globe and Mail

"A starkly realistic account...as important, as frank, as powerful a book as [Alice Walker's The Color Purple] was for Americans."

Dominion (New Zealand)
