This valuable regional history encompasses myths and legends, the succession of tribes who have inhabited Te Tau Ihu o Te Waka a Maui (the top of the South Island) and their interactions, early encounters with Europeans, the arrival of the New Zealand Company, the Treaty of Waitangi, land transactions, and the administrations of Māori reserves.

Hilary and John Mitchell have woven traditional oral histories together with documented accounts, quoting from whakapapa books and family records, participants, diarists, officials, reporters and observers. The result, based upon many years of writing and research is a richly illustrated, comprehensive and beautifully written book capturing the flavour of the region and its history.
