A powerful novel by the author of Once Were Warriors about a half caste and his Maori warrior ancestor, cast out of his tribe.

Jimmy understands all about belonging and not belonging. he sees himself as part of both sides of the moon: 'Kind of black man, sort of nigger, in my own country, and kind of white, sort of The Man, by the other half of me. I am torn, yet I am more whole since I am both . . .'

He is part of a fractured family, and it's only when he learns about his forebear - a brave warrior who became an outcast from his tribe - that he begins to understand the darker implications of his heritage.
