Life old and new through the eyes of a Maori elder.

This is the story of Amiria s life and marriage as told to Anne Salmond. Amiria was born on the East Coast at Tuparoa late last century and her story begins with her childhood spent both in her grandmother's raupo hut and the magnificent Williams homestead Kaharau. It takes the reader through her schooldays, her taumau (arranged) marriage to Eruera Stirling, farming on 'The Coast' and latter days in Auckland, where the Stirlings lived as prominent elders until their deaths in 1983.
