A Journey In The Northern Island Of New Zealand: Interspersed with various information relative to the country and people By William Richard Wade. In Dust Jacket small sticker mark at front, First Published in 1842 This Reprint 1977, 206 Pages, Published By the Capper Press Christchurch.
A Near Fine Copy.
'From the Bay of islands to Hokianga, Tauranga, Waikato, Rotorua and Paihia. This book is one of the earliest published books on this most interesting area. With an excellent account of the hot lakes region, Wade has commented on how the Maoris used the heat of the pools to warm the growing houses for their kumaras, and bathed continually in the warm pools- sometimes spending all day there with food and fire for their pipes brought to the poolside. Detailed notes on the carvings, canoes and habits of all tribes he came in contact with show the differences between the Maoris of the Bay of islands, who were in constant trade with the pioneers, and the more settled self-sufficient Maoris of the hot lakes region. There is a comprehensive Appendix of NZ plants, with a list of the native names and concise descriptions of the native flora and fauna. Astute conversations with all he met; original observations of the countryside; his comments on traditions; language, cooking styles and utensils of the Maori, clearly show the atmosphere of the new colony before organised settlement began' Please click here to ask a question
