This is an auction for BETWEEN THE RIVERS by Elizabeth Hill.

This is a *** signed *** copy of the book.

"That part of Central Hawkes Bay bounded by the rivers Ngaruroro, Tutaekuri and Tukituki is the setting for Elizabeth Hill's historic collection, which is based largely on interviews she conducted with residents post-1981. However, local knowledge and existing archives and records also contributed to her material. Born and educated in the Hawkes Bay, a journalist there and living close to the Ngaruroro River for 36 years, provided essential insights for such a book. Her history is not strictly chronological --- rather episodic --- but deals with a host of topics, prominent personalities, events, occasions, progress, disappointments and difficulties, everything from war-stories to show biz, matters medical to controlling those flood-prone rivers. Nothing dry or stolid about her presentation of history which maybe is best described as "informal." Nevertheless, here is a history really with something for everyone."

Large format hardback 1980.
