True Tales Of Maunu/Maungatapere

Author(s): Bill Black

History

The challenge was to produce a document such that when our grandchildren and great grandchildren asked the question, "What was it like in your day, Gran or Gramps" we could say, "Come and read this book we wrote, come sit alongside me.  My friends and I wrote it so you would find out."


And how the District responded to our challenge.  Our generation can remember family stories handed on, told, retold over the dinner table, from our parents and grandparents day.  This takes our social history back about 100 years, some times more.


Ours is a Social History.  It contains the stories of ordinary people, who did extraordinary things.  You wont find lists of numbers of employees, production statistics, costs of shared, and interminable dates; or reports carefully couched ("spun" by paid liars) to show how important or great the writers were.  These are events as seen by Joe Bloggs at ground level.


We have received over 150 stories, including some very short 3-5 line tales.  We have labeled the book True Tales because they were written in good faith by the writers, as they recalled the events and incidents.  Our Tales are as True as the memories of those who recalled them.
