Whangaroa - A singular and beautifully Romantic place
By E V Sale

It was Captain Richard A Cruise, commander of the military detachment aboard the British naval supply ship Dromedary who gave Whangaroa Harbour, on March 8, 1820, his salute as a "a singular and beautifully romantic place."

Thousands of others have since admired, enjoyed and explored the still largely unspoiled beauties of the lovely, historic, many-storied place. In few places around New Zealand has so much Maori and Pakeha tradition been packed - interwoven and interacting - into a small area.

This book sets out to capture some of this beauty and tradition, and to tell the stories of three small towns - Kaeo, Whangaroa and Totara North - and of the area around them, stretching from magnificent caostline to the depth of a kauri forest.

Illustrated with b/w and color photographs.
Soft cover, good condition, first published 1986, 156pages, dedication on half title page
