Weeping Waters is a must read for anyone who wants to be informed about the current debate regarding the Treaty of Waitangi and a constitution for Aotearoa New Zealand. The book features essays from eighteen well-known and respected Maori figures including Professor Margaret Mutu, Bishop Muru Walters, Judge Caren Fox and lawyer Moana Jackson. This is the first book in recent years to offer a M?ori opinion on the subject of constitutional change. It shows how M?ori views have been ignored by successive governments and the courts and how M?ori have attempted to address constitutional issues in the past. The book also provides suggestions for a pathway forward if the Treaty of Waitangi is to be fully acknowledged as the foundation for a constitution for Aotearoa New Zealand.

Inspector Albertus Beeslaar has left the ruthless city, only to have his hopes of finding peace and quiet in the Kalahari shattered by the brutal murder of artist Freddie Swarts and her adopted daughter. But Freddie’s journalist sister Sara is not convinced that this was a typical farm attack. Amid a spate of stock thefts, Beeslaar must solve this high-profile crime, all the while training his two rookie partners, Ghaap and Pyl. After more murders, the disturbing puzzle grows increasingly sinister, as age-old secrets and hostilities surface, spurring the local inhabitants to violent action. No one is above suspicion, not least the mysterious Bushman farm manager and falconer, Dam. Weeping Waters is Maya Fowler and Isobel Dixon’s translation of the Afrikaans bestseller Plaasmoord, a novel that peels away the layers of a landscape steeped in conflict, and hails the arrival of a bright new voice in South African crime fiction available in English.

On Christmas Eve 1953, shortly after 10pm a lahar (torrent of water) gushed out of the crater of Mount Ruapehu and swept down the valley, fatally weakening a railway bridge, minutes before a packed overnight express train nose-dived into a river at tangiwai, in the centre of the North Island. Many of the 285 passengers, mostly families and young people, were asleep and 151 perished in one of the world's worst train disasters. For Maori the tragedy was inevitable. the train track should never have been built across the volcano's path . . . tangiwai means weeping waters and was known as the place of torrential flows and death. In Weeping Waters, the memories of tangiwai drive those who live there fifty years on to look for ways to tame Ruapehu, where another deadly lahar is building. Set between 1953 and the present day the novel is based on events surrounding the tangiwai disaster and the conflict that still exists. While the characters and incidents are invented, many of the 1953 survival and rescue stories are based on true events. When a young Vulcanologist comes to research early warning systems on the mountain, she finds herself in the middle of a raging debate between local landowners, iwi and government agencies. With a hidden agenda of her own she finds herself torn between two men, each on opposing sides of the argument.

From Village Boy to Global Citizen (Volume 2): The Travels of a Journalist is the last of my autobiographical trilogy. The 74 chapters in this volume attempt to describe and dramatize the most memorable places I visited, often accompanied by my family, since I left the country of my birth in 1966. After my retirement in 2007, I found the time to compile this travelogue using the notes in my diaries and updating the material through online research, with particular help from the constantly revised Wikipedia entries. In this process, I learned to make each travel essay an evergreen that would not perish soon after its publication as in the case of newspaper travel pieces. Travel has shaped my personality. Global travel to get to know culturally diverse people was one of my childhood ambitions. Moreover, travel is an essential aspect of a journalists life. Therefore, my travels constitute a very important part of my autobiography. I included detail in the hope that the reader would keep this volume for long-term reference. My explorations of U.S. national parks and my camping expeditions should be of particular interest to family- oriented travelers. Each of the essays in this volume appeared in the Lankaweb starting December 6, 2009. It carried the latest (but not the last) story (chapter 109) on December 4, 2011. Reacting to the essay (chapter 106) on our mule ride in Mexican territory during the Big Bend adventure, a reader commented, As always it was very well written and visually engaging, which made us feel we were there too. [We] particularly liked the reference to Yankee Doodles [that] made us smile! Thank you for posting it and await the next in the series (May 15, 2011). Another reader reacted to the essay (chapter 92) on our visit to the botanic gardens in Portland, Ore., Please do continue with your articles, Shelton. They are getting better all the time, as you reveal to your readers more of your own thoughts, emotions, and reactions (February 9, 2011). From Village Boy to Global Citizen (Volume 1): The Journey of a Journalist is the second of my autobiographical trilogy. It traces my life as a journalist and a journalism educator in three countries. Village Life in the Forties: Memories of a Lankan Expatriate (published by iUniverse) is the first of the trilogy. This is a collection of 28 sketches of folks in the village of my birth. Each sketch depicts the drama of life relating to the famous and infamous characters who defined the ethos of Pathegama in the 1940s. They range from the amusing and comical to the grave and somber. The trilogy is inextricably interconnected, interdependent and interactive. You are unlikely to grasp what systems theorists call the emergence of the whole if you read only parts of this trilogy.
