Williment, T M I: John Hobbs 1800-1883: Wesleyan Missionary to the Ngapuhi tribe of Northern New Zealand.


Published by Government Printer, Wellington 1985

First edition, Hard Cover. Book Condition: good, ex-library, no dust wrapper. 261 pages, b/w illustrations, maps.

Arriving in the Bay of Islands in 1823 as a member of the Wesleyan Mission, John Hobbs was to spend virtually all his subsequent life serving the Ngapuhi. This biography is by one of his descendents, Tolla Williment, who based her depiction of Hobbs' life and work on his journals, as well as other records and sources. Missionary life was far from easy --- often dangerous, isolated and full of hardships. Like many missionaries, Hobbs was a versatile "preacher," who could turn his hand to the skills of building, medicine, farming, printing, translating, navigation and music. A fine record of New Zealand as it was in the peak of missionary influence and one containing much of historical interest.
