This high quality book covers the history of the old Pauatahanui district (from Paremata to the top of Hayward's Hill, Paekakariki Hill, to Camborne and including Whitby) from 1820 to 2012.

The book fills a gap in the recorded history of the Pauatahanui and Whitby localities, and thus in the story of the wider Porirua area and the Wellington region.

Hard bound, 307 pages and beautifully published, it contains hundreds of photos and stories, broken into nine sections:

•Chapter One: 1820 - 1846 Arrivals
•Chapter Two: 1847 - 1879 Pauatahanui becomes a thriving community
•Chapter Three: 1880 - 1913 Pauatahanui at its prime
•Chapter Four: 1914 - 1945 The difficult years
•Chapter Five: 1946 - 1985 The Pauatahanui landscape is transformed
•Chapter Six: 1986 - 2012 Pauatahanui and Whitby in modern times
•Appendix I: Pauatahanui families
•Appendix II: Political representation for Pauatahanui, Judgeford and Whitby 1853-2012
•Appendix III: Timeline of events

The book also includes extensive endnotes, bibliography and index.

Published by the Pauatahanui Residents Association, produced by Geoff Norman.
