About this title

Synopsis:

In a small coastal community threatened by developers who would ravage their lands it is a time of fear and confusion - and growing anger. The prophet child Tokowaru-i-te-Marama shares his people's struggles against bulldozers and fast money talk. When dramatic events menace the marae, his grief and rage threaten to burst beyond the confines of his twisted body. His all-seeing eye looks forward to a strange and terrible new dawn. Patrica Grace's second novel is a work of spellbinding power in which the myths of older times are inextricably woven into the political realities of today. Also available as an eBook

From the Back Cover:

Winner of the 1987 New Zealand Fiction AwardThis compelling novel will resonate for people everywhere who find their livelihood threatened by ""Dollarmen"" - property speculators advocating golf courses, high rises, shopping malls, and tourist attractions. In 'Potiki', one community's response to attacks on their ancestral values and symbols provides moving affirmation of the relationship between land the the people who live on it.
