"Come back with me, if you will, to meet the people and visit the places in the town where I grew up. To a time when summers were long, and life was slow, and pleasures were simple. To the valley community of Wainuiomata in 1955."

New Zealand writer Philip Marshall has published a humorous account of growing up in Wainuiomata from 1955  to 1970. "Wainui Days" describes school days, local personalities, entertainments, church life, family motoring and social activities, capturing the flavour of life in the valley community 50 years ago.

"Wainui Days" can be ordered from the online PublishMe bookshop. It costs $19.95 plus P&P
