Servants of the North Adventures on the Coastal Trade with the Northern Steam Ship Compan
by Cliff Furniss.

Hardback, 1st edition 1977, 201 pages, in good condition

Servants of' the North will have a wide appeal for those to whom ships and the people who sail in them have a special attraction, and to the many people who have a hankering to know more of the past. The book sets out to record the heyday of the coastal steamers, when the little ships of the Northern Steam Ship Company carried passengers and cargo to isolated settlements scattered around the small bays and up the tidal creeks of North Auckland and further south as well, to Wanganui, Whakatane and the Coromandel.

From a store of personal memories, and the spare time study of a life-time, Cliff Furniss re-creates scenes from Auckland's colourful past: of the days when skippers listened for the bark of a well-known dog to guide their ships into a fog-bound estuary; when steamers raced neck-to-neck to the only available berth; of the days when ships struck snags and foundered up the far reaches of rivers.
