By W.A. Chambers

Ironside was a Weslayan missionary in colonial New Zealand. He arrived at the Hokianga Harbour before Governor Hobson reached New Zealand to proclaim British sovereignty. His successive posts were at Mangungu on the Hokianga, Kawhia, Port Underwood in Cloudy Bay, Wellington and Nelson and Taranaki.

He was a supporter and signatory of the Treaty of Waitangi; he knew many of those who were involved in the Wairau "massacre: and he buried the victims; he observed the first flame of military attack and counterattack in the Hutt Valley in 1846; and he witnessed the inevitability of land troubles leading to the inter-tribal and interracial war in Taranaki.

The book reconstructs, through the life of one missionary, the effort to save souls, to provide education in language, agriculture and other skills; to defuse inflamed encounters between Maori tribes and and between Maori and Pakeha; to improve sanitation, health and housing, and thus to develop Christian civilisation in New Zealand. All this excites admiration.
