Something a bit retro!

Not sure how we acquired this book. Published in 1972.
It has some interesting little snippets in it. For instance, how the Maori measured the progress of the year based on how man and agricultural activities were affected by monthly changes. The Maori new year begins in June. The book states this about the first month - Pipiri - "All things contracted by cold, including man". Here is a link for more info.
