""'Kia Ora, Chief!' is in no way a hagiography; rather it is an affectionate, heavily anecdotal, occasionally critical but never vindictive sight into the life of a New Zealand politician who was a real 'man of the people'...Overall, this book honours him, and Parekura Horomia's mana grows in stature the more we learn about him and his career on behalf of his people.""

Michael O'Leary - Landfall

""The narrative mix is quintessentially Māori: the story does not belong exclusively to author and subject, but to the contributors too.""
