    eBook Monday's Warriors PDF/EPUB Ê Ý bvlive.co.uk monday's epub, warriors ebok, Monday's Warriors ePUBThis book grabbed mereally funny Based on some bits of history I grabbed at the library liked the jacket then realized the story was about a man from Maine who ended up in NZ in the late 1800's and became part of the tribal wars with Tikoho Really must find another book by Shadbolt Would recommend it to anyone with any interest in NZ

    eBook Monday's Warriors PDF/EPUB Ê Ý bvlive.co.uk monday's epub, warriors ebok, Monday's Warriors ePUBHere's a little a gem of a bookI'll try to remember as far as my cerebellum can ignite my nerve receptors with serotoninThe setting is New Zealand of the 1800sA rebellious British soldier deserts his troop after a few run ins with his superiors He hooks up with the Maoriwho are in a war with the British; he pretty much finds his own little paradise gets a Maori woman and has to deal with a few of his own cultural conflicts such as attempting to bring himself to practicing cannibalism I found in its own whimsical manner the book had humor; it wasn't particularly a gratituously violent read either; rather a good little read with some amusing dialogueAnd I learned a bit about New Zealand and its history
