Missionaries, Wives & Roses
by Ann Chapman

ISBN: 9781877577918
PUBLISHER: Steele Roberts & Associates Ltd
FORMAT: Paperback

DIMENSIONS: 260mmX210mm

When the Reverend Samuel Marsden, under the mantle of the chief Ruatara, sent his missionaries to the far north of New Zealand they were often unprepared for the hardships that followed. Their wives frequently bore the greater burden as they were left alone, bearing children, teaching, nursing, gardening and building a home in harsh conditions while their husbands travelled. Ken Nobbs (1909-1996), himself a former missionary to the Sudan before retiring and turning his hand to writing, horticulture and breeding roses, was inspired by their stories: 'I am offering a number of new rambler roses ...Instead of identifying them by numbers I have distinguished them by names, taking the opportunity to honour the memory of pioneer women who might otherwise be forgotten.' This book is a double celebration -- of the early missionaries, settlers and their wives, and of New Zealander Ken Nobbs who honoured them in his roses.
