Descripción

Former NZ Prime Minister David Lange described Dick Scott's account of the seven pioneer families who settled the Pahi district on the upper reaches on NZ's largest inland waterway, the Kaipara Harbour, as "being an extraordinary book" giving "marvellous insights into people." They had arrived in that part of Nothland in the late 1850s. although settlement on the western coastal area had begun earlier, and they immediatly faced the prospect of not only supporting themselves but also of establishing relations with the Maori tribes people. The seven families taking cetre-place in the history are those that left a long-term mark of the development of the district. Undoubtedly one of the best of the more recent books on the lives and activities of the country's pioneers. so much so that it was the 1988 winner of the New Zealand Book Award. Scott's enlightening text is complemented by an outstanding collection of historic people and places photographs. First published in 1987, reprinted the following year with this edition in 1999, 160 pages including sources, picture credits and index, b/w photos throughout, map and few art illustrations. Colour art laminated card covers VG+, top corners pages 33 to 42 with light turn-over creases, text block otherwise NF, no inscriptions. N° de ref. de la librería 004513
