Where New Zealand Began

Project 2017-07-20 10:30:22 +1200

How,why and where New Zealand emerged from Aotearoa in the Bay of Islands. A historical tour of the creation of settlements at Ohio, Kerikeri, Paihia, Kororareka (to become Russell), Kawakawa, Kaeo, Opua and the interaction of Maori with whalers, traders and missionaries as precursors to the Treaty of Waitangi and the creation of a new nation. An easy read for Kiwis and tourists alike it shows how these places in the Bay became villages and then towns and have become desired places to live, work and play - especially for sailors and fishermen and women chasing world record making catches for game fish and a huge range of smaller fish and Kai moana (seafood).

Research has been completed; the book has been written, read, reread, proofed;a great cover photo has been taken from the place where Hone Heke cut down the flagstaff and the British flag not once but four times; images for each chapter and the map of the Bay have been created; a publisher has been found and the book is complete up to an initial print run being ordered.

We need to fund this and require a minimum of 100 people to buy the book in advance. The cost for the book, signed by the author, delivered to your NZ address is just $30 per copy and will be delivered by the end of August. 

This will allow for a small first run for a number of keen booksellers at museums and other shops around the Bay to take initial stock and be ready for the start of the 2017/18 tourist season when some 60 cruise ships will call in to the Bay.
