About this object

The site on which modern Auckland stands and which Maori called Tamaki-makau-rau was a virtual population void in 1840. But it was reputed in former times to be the most densely settled region in Aotearoa. This book explains that paradox. Contents: Tamaki-makau-rau and its peoples -- From Waiohua to Ngati Whatua, c. 1600-1800 -- Peace and war, c. 1800-21 -- War from the north, 1821-26 -- 'Wandering about the face of the earth', 1826-31 -- Years of exile, 1831-35 -- The search for peace, 1836-38 -- Return to Tamaki -- Hobson, the Treaty and Tamaki -- Hobson's choice -- The founding of Auckland. Includes bibliographical references (p. 337-340) and index.
