The story of the successful negotiation of the Ngāti Ruanui treaty settlement and the creation of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ruanui is told here for the first time. The central theme of this important book is the unwavering determination of the Ngāti Ruanui tribe to hold on to their land and their autonomy.

This eloquent and detailed Taranaki history has grown out of research for the Ngāti Ruanui tribal treaty claim against the New Zealand Crown. From pre-Hawaiki times it follows the Aotea  canoe from Ranigātea in the Pacific to New Zealand Aotearoa and the settlement of Turi and his people at Pātea. The battles and alliances over the centuries and the rich and varied Ngāti Ruanui history form the narrative background for the arrival of Pākehā from Europe and the devastation and land confiscations that followed.
