Between Worlds: Early Exchanges Between Maori and Europeans 1773-1815
By Anne Salmond

This book picks up where the prevous book Two Worlds ended, with the arrival of Cook's second expedition in 1773, and takes the story through to 1815, with the establishment of the first British missionary settlement in the Bay of Islands.

Between Worlds describes Cook's second and third voyages. It tells of a time when white people first lived on the shores of New Zealand, often joining Maori communities - the first so-called Pakeha-Maori. The story also covers the early visits of the missionaries Marsden and Kendall.

At the same time, young Maori men went to sea in European ships and explored the world. Their stories also make intriguing reading. Meanwhile Maori communities were working out their own strategies for dealing with the strangers in their midst. New ways of living began to emerge between Maori and European. `It was,' says Salmond in the introduction to this book, ‘a swashbuckling period of cross-cultural trial and error.’
