Frontier of Dreams: The story of New Zealand
Edited by Bronwyn Dalley & Gavin McLean

Led by Bronwyn Dalley and Gavin McLean, this team of New Zealand history specialists has assembled a wealth of stories that capture the pivotal events and issues, as well as the concerns of those who peopled our past. The big turning points are all here - colonisation in 1840, the wars of the 1860s and of the 20th century, the Depression, the post-war boom and Rogernomics, to name just a few - but so are everyday New Zealanders from all walks of life, from town and country, at work and at play. The authors have drawn upon not only a wealth of current scholarship but also an interest in the lives of ordinary New Zealanders to follow our national story from prehistory right up to the present.

In full colour and lavishly illustrated, this sumptuous history includes over 450 carefully chosen photographs and artworks, many previously unpublished. These are accompanied by specially drawn maps, and images from the television series, as well as handy timelines, which set out the key dates and events for each chapter.
