The Burning of the 'Boyd' - Wade Doak
A Saga of Culture Clash

Pub 1984 1st Edition Hard Cover 184 pages illustrated.

An vivid account of a tragic 1809 encounter between early European travellers to the far North of NZ and the Maori of the area. Differences led to the seizure of the ship and massacre of those aboard, in Whangaroa Harbour. As well as the history of the events the book contains interesting detail of the convict settlement at Sydney, where the Boyd was based. Of further interest is the expedition of the author (a well-known NZ diver) to locate and explore the burned out remains of the ship, 170 years after the massacre. During it a number of artifacts were found.
