No Fear of Rusting

Author(s): Philip Andrews

NZ History

A head buried in his garden, his mission station plundered and burnt, warfare and acnnibalism whithin his own district: these were among the varied experiences of missionary Thomas Chapman (1792-1876) who came to New Zealand as a cathechist for the Church Missionary Society in 1830, and spent over thirty years in the field, at the Bay of Islands, Rotorua and Maketu. This book describes the missionary work, attitudes, opinions, and wit of this respected, dedicated, humourous and widely-loved missionary, an important though largely overlooked figure whose journals and letters provide a wealth of background detail about the Maori response to Christianity and colonial authority.
