This is the life story of this well-known Maori woman in Hawke's Bay and the East Coast. It deals with her ancestors in the whaling world and Maori ancestry on her mother's side. Then follows through the 90 years of her life, her family, interests and places of residence. As we trace her life many local poeple are mentioned. Her marriage in 1913 and widowhood and later her marriage to the Rev. P.Hakiwai, Minister of the Waipatu-Moteo Parish near Hastings. Her opinions on many social problems facing the Maori people are given as she told them. Bishop Bennett's forword gives the Maori reaction to the book. It has been made a simple story so that it may appeal to her many descendants and friends. The illustrations were copied from her albums and made possible by a grant from the Maori Purposes Fund. The portrait for the cover was specially painted by Mary Walsh the artist."
