The award-winning biography of Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Turuki, Redemption Songs (1995, Montana Book of the Year 1996) is one of several books Judith Binney has written on the people of Te Urewera - work that concluded with the acclaimed Encircled Lands: Te Urewera, 1820-1921 (2009, New Zealand Post Book of the Year 2010).
