This is an auction for KARORI & ITS PEOPLE, edited for the Karori Historical Society by Judith Burch & Jan Heynes.

"This 368-page history vividly describes Karori's growth from rural outpost in the 1840s to the thriving community it is today - one of New Zealand's largest and most significant suburbs. Some of Palmerston ?North and New Zealand's most influential and creative citizens have come from Karori: builder Samuel Parnell, instigator of the 8-hour day; Palmerston ?North's first judge, Henry Chapman, and first woman mayor, Fran Wilde; the young Katherine Mansfield; and many other exceptional individuals and families. Now it is also the home to the Zealandia sanctuary. This book is packed with stories and pictures of the people who have made - and continue to make - Karori such a vital place."
