BELICH James 
Making Peoples
A history of the New Zealanders from Polynesian Settlement to the End of the Nineteenth Century
cover image of Making Peoples - A history of New Zealanders from Polynesian Settlement to the End of the Nineteenth Century for sale in New Zealand

From the Polynesian settlement and development of the Maori tribes in the eleventh century.
First encounters between Maori and Europeans from 1642 and the settlement of the Pakeha, the neo-Europeans of New Zealand, between the 1830s and the 1880s.
Belich describes the forging of a neo-Polynesia and a neo-Britain and the traumatic interaction between them. He examines the myths and realities that drove the colonialization process and suggests a new "living" version of the Treaty of Waitangi, New Zealand's Magna Carta.
The construction of peoples, Maori and Pakeha, is a recurring theme: the response of each to the great shift from extractive to sustainable economics; their relationship with their ancestors and origins, with each other, and with myth.

New Zealand Racism in the Making
The Life & Times of Walter Mantell
cover image of New Zealand Racism in the Making: The Life & Times of Walter Mantell for sale in New Zealand

"Politically, racism is a distraction. Scientifically, it is nonsense. There was no racism in New Zealand 200 years ago. But New Zealand now has an Official Race Relations Commissioner to deal with racism. Where did this racism come from, and how did it get established"? This book explains how it came about. Walter Mantell was among the first English colonists to land in New Zealand when it became a British colony in 1840. He was then 19 years of age. By the time of his death in 1895, he had become well known as a Maori claims commissioner, as a scientist and as a politician. Mantell's 'life and times' coincide with the rise of New Zealand racism to this fateful development."

COLLINS Andrew 
The Seventh Sword
Psychic Quest for King Arthur's Sword

"In 1979 the author and a psychic colleague went to a secluded pool in the heart of England. Under the cover of darkness they unearthed a sword bearing Mary Queen of Scot's personal monogram and an inscription proclaiming Meonia fore Marye. Meonia; the name given to a green jewel believed to be the Philosophers Stone of the alchemists. Soon after a green jewel was discovered inside a seventeenth-century brass casket....a twelve year quest of supernatural drama, spectral visitations and confrontations with sinister forces. One by one five further swords, all identical to the first , surfaced under mysterious circumstances....the search is on to uncover their maker, their purpose, their ultimate use, and, of course the seventh and final Sword of Meonia". In 1989 the author and a colleague located and unearthed a sword which they believed had been made from a sword belonging to King Arthur. When he appeared on television with his discovery, five other people came forward who, as a result of dreams or visions, had found other swords belonging to the set of seven. According to legend, when the seven swords are brought together there will be a last battle with the forces of evil. At the end of the 19th century a group of Masons supposedly tried to bring the swords together but were defeated by an ancient occult conspiracy. The Masons dispersed and buried the swords in various places around the country. Now the author invites the reader to help him with the renewed quest for the seventh sword of destiny.

The author has travelled to Greece and Crete to follow in the footsteps of the ANZACs during the Second World War.
He recounts how outside the village of Galatas on Crete, drivers of the New Zealand Divisional Petrol Company, fought Hitlers elite 3rd Parachute Regiment to a standstill, never taking a backward step over six tumultuous days of fighting despite the loss of all their officers in the initial assault.
He recounts the courageous deeds of the Cretan villagers who fought alongside the Anzacs, and of the Australian 2/7 rearguard abandoned at Sfakia and the troops at Iraklio left in the lurch.
The author continues in his father's tyre tracks through North Africa and Italy

MORTON Elsie K  
Crusoes of Sunday Island
Crusoes of Sunday Island for sale in New Zealand Crusoes of Sunday Island for sale in New Zealand

Tom Bell was a born pioneer who, after fighting in the Maori wars of the sixties decided that the one thing he wanted more than anything else was to find an uninhabited Pacific Island, take his wife and young children there, and open it up as a trading station.
In 1878 they came eventually to Sunday Island six hundred miles north of Auckland.
This is a desert island story. It has elements of both Robinson Crusoe and The Swiss Family Robinson, but has the added interest of being absolutely true.
Sunday Island is a tiny fertile volcanic island which was haunted by ill-luck. From the start the family had to live the life of desert islanders.
They had bought food supplies from the captain of the trading schooner from which they landed, but when they began to unpack the cases of food they found all of it rotten.
They had been deserted as well as cheated, for the schooner never returned and it was nearly another year before they saw anyone.
Tom and Frederica Bell raised a family of ten in utter isolation and after years of effort and setbacks they made an Eden of their island only to lose it in the end.
The story was told to the author by one of Tom Bell's daughters who was nine years old when the family landed on the island.
