Curious New Zealand Place Names

'Whykickamoocow - or is is Wakikamukau?

New Zealand's diverse cultural history has given rise to a wide range of interesting, humorous and totally bizarre place names and this light-hearted yet factual collection reveals the tales behind seventy of them. From Waimate North to Invercargill, and from Bulls to Nightcaps, these stories behind the names tell of the lives of pre-European Maori, the arrival of European explorers and missionaries, the first British, French and German settlers, the New Zealand Wars and the gold rushes.

Ranging from the obvious to the obscure, they provide a snapshot of this country's history.
