"The Kaiwaka Historical Society was very pleased to accept the offer of Roger Smith to write this account of Kaiwaka and surrounding districts' last 50 years. Roger comes with a professional background in journalism. We have had the benefit of reading some of Roger's writing and were extremely impressed with his insight, ability, and determination in researching his subects. This publication comes about only through Roger's desire to contribute locally and his preparedness to donate many hundreds of hours of work. Readers are assured of good reading, accurate research and a book that will be treasured by anyone with an interest in our history. Lindsey J. Hargreaves, Founder, Kaiwaka Historical Society."

Cover photograph:
"The photograph that wraps around the front and back covers of this book is the work of photographer Kapil Arn... His generous donation of the use of his image for this book follows recognition that Kaiwaka has become known as "The Little Town of Lights" since local baker Mark Ottaway began outlining buildings with low-wattage lights in 1997. As time went on his designs became more adventurous and now almost every public building and business in Kaiwaka sports a picture in lights that relates to the building's purpose."
