In 1939/40 a large number of regional and local histories were published to mark the 1940 centennial of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, (NZ's founding document). Among the more impressive of these many histories was CJ Roberts "Centennial History of Hawera and the Waimate Plains", which ran to nearly 400 pages. The book was seen as a "memorial to the pioneers of South Taranaki" and commemorating the diamond jubilee of Hawera County Council, which was joined in supporting the publication by Hawera Borough Council, Manaia Town Board, and Waimate West Country Council. As the author's preface points out the region had historical associations, including the last of the Maori Wars. Subsequently, the European pioneers returned to "convert a wildernes into a land of wonderful production." Before recording the difficulties and set-backs the pioneers experienced as a result of the conflict the book refers to earlier times of Maori settlement. Following the Land Wars the South Taranaki area developed as a leading dairying and agriciltural area with the gradual addition of towns and settlements, local government administrations, transport and roading, civic, community, cultural and recreational amenities. All this and more is covered in the book and it would difficult to name any particular aspect of growth and progress in the district that the author overlooked, First edition c.1939 (not dated but both preface and foreword dated late 1939), 395 pages, illustrated with b/w photographs throughout.
