The Mill is Kaiapoi

"THE MILL IS KAIAPOI" follows over 200 years of history about an iconic part of New Zealand: history from when it was a major trading Pa for Ngai Tahu, to arrival of European immigrants, the 100 years it was a mill town and now rebuilding itself after the devastating 2010 & 2011 earthquakes.

Using Handmade Histories signature combination of fabrics, Mecccano, toys, old photos, coins and buttons this is a fun and entertaining way to stir your curiosity in New Zealand history.

David Parker has written a catchy variation of the tune "Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye" (an old Irish folk song) to sing along with the story. A CD is included in the book which folds out to become a wall hanging!
