AuthorAbout this object
"This centennial volume celebrates the hundredth year of European settlement in the Waikato; it also has a chapter on Maori settlement. There are brief accounts of the early days of each Waikato town. But the houses people lived in, the clothes they wore, the way they worked for a living - these are the author's chief subjects and she has described them with a lively pen. Old photographs and paintings have been carefully chosen and reproduced. Pictures and text together provide a vivid picture of life in the first thirty years of European settlement"--Back cover.
