Burning of the "Boyd" Saga of Culture Clash By Wade Doak

Binding tight, pages good. Illustrated.

ISBN 0340338857
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton Ltd, 1984, first printing.

"A vivid account of a tragic 1809 encounter between early European travellers to the far North of NZ and the Maori of the area. Differences led to the seizure of the ship and massacre of those aboard, in Whangaroa Harbour. As well as the history of the events the book contains interesting detail of the cconvict settlement at Sydney, where the Boyd was based. Of further interest is the expedition of the author (a well-known NZ diver) to locate and explore the burned out remains of the ship, 170 years after the massacre. During it a number of artifacts were found."
