Compiled 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 singular and beautifully romantic place". Thousands of others have since admired, enjoyed and explored the still largely unspoiled beauties of this lovely, historic, many-storied place. In few places around New Zealand has so much Maori and Pakeha tradition been packed interwoven and interacting into such 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 coastline to the depth of a kauri forest.

Here is then, as a later visitor to the area described it, is "extra New Zealand".
