There are few people alive today who, having lived through the 1950s, can look back without a sense of nostalgia and sadness - knowing that those unforgettable years have long gone, never to return. But with his unique book about Kaitaia's 1950s Keith Parker gives everyone an armchair opportunity to relive one of the great periods of the 20th Century.

It was the age of innocence - but it was the age when innocence was lost. They were the brief postwar years before materialism started its relentless march through the western world.

In capturing these times, as they relate to New Zealand's Far North, Parker has come up with no ordinary history book. He writes with humour, pathos and candour. He remembers the old pioneers as well as the many new settlers. Together, they brought Kaitaia out of the doldrums creating a modern and progressive town and a worthy centre serving the Far North of New Zealand.

But the memories still linger on ... Here is yesterday's news, up-to-date and as fresh as the 1950s' days you lived through. Enjoy a laugh or shed a tear and remember the world when it - and you - seemed young.
