AuthorAbout 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.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 337-340) and index.Date Made
