Check to Your King
By Robin Hyde

Very good hardback and jacket - slightly chipped with faded spine.

288 pages

Baron de Thierry, self-styled King Pokeno of Hokianga, was surely New Zealand's most romantic coloniser. Part English, part French, Charles de Thierry trustingly bought 40,000 acres from the missionary Thomas Kendall and the two colourful chiefs he brought with him to meet the King of England.

This sympathetic and witty historical novel recounts the adventures of the de Thierry family - the incident-packed journey to claim their kauri-wooded lands; the hostility they faced from the land-hungry settlers; the Baron's courageous support for Bishop Pompallier whose presence sparked off the religious hatreds of the young colony.
