The remarkable true New Zealand stories of Australian whaler William Thomas as told to his grandchildren in the 1890's. These fantastic tales span the course of 90 years and have William unwittingly embedded at key important and historical moments in Southland and Otago's history. Along with other fascinating adventures William brings the past back to life in his unique story telling. His marvelous tales are humorous, bizarre and sometimes tragic but always gritty, genuine and down to earth in their narrative. Edited and Arranged by David Dudfield Forward by Lloyd Esler

Fairy Tales, Fables & Yarns For All Ages

Fairy tales are escapes into wondrous worlds. It is only our inflexible adult reasoning that tells us that they are just for children. Fables, too, are disdainfully disregarded by grown-ups, in spite of the valuable life lessons that they often provide. It is only yarns and tall tales that are permitted to dwell in the structured world of the adult. I have compiled this collection of silly, inconsequential stories and poems to satisfy the child in any of us that has been handicapped by active imagination, and has been unable to fully embrace the responsible, pedantic adult world. A few of these little stories were written for my children, as they journeyed from childhood, to adolescence to adulthood. I hope that the tales have allowed them to avoid becoming staid grownups. A few of these yarns were written for staid adults. I am glad to say that they, for a few moments anyway, were able to become irresponsible children again. A couple – specifically, the romantic poems – were written for my wife, who I hope will not be terribly upset that I have shared private thoughts with the world. Many were written just for me. No reason, other than that I like being a perpetual child. For those of you who dare to explore wondrous worlds, even if you do so in the secrecy of your own hidden sanctums, I welcome you to my haven. Please enjoy, and thank you
