Pioneer Tales of Old New Plymouth

Author(s): Murray Moorhead

Rotorua Books

This New Plymouth story is a story for all New Zealanders. With meticulous research and many humorous anecdotes, Murray Moorhead (author of First in Arms) brings to life the colour, the pain and the triumphs of our early settlers in the place they referred to as ?The Garden of New Zealand?. Written with great sensitivity, Murray?s story gives you an amazing insight into the lives of our early pioneers ? it follows their arrival to a land scarred by two decades of bitter intertribal fighting and their struggle to settle and adapt to life in their new home. Within twenty years they were to be involved in the turmoil of New Zealand?s first interracial war (Taranaki War 1860?61). These are the stories of our first settlers and of their neighbouring Maori communities and their turbulent relationships.
