Blackie: A Story of the Old-time Bushman
cover image of Blackie: A Story of the Old-time Bushman

This is the story of Blackie (Andrew Black), a legendary bushman who worked and fought and drank and gambled his way from Tasmania to Victoria to Otago to the King Country to Northland, and to the Solomon Islands where his bones now lie buried. It is also the story of his only love, Ettie, whose heart he nearly broke with his mania for grog and gambling. She married someone else, but....Ted Ashby first met them in the timber-mill town of Powelltown, Victoria, where he went to work in the 1920s. He worked with Blackie there and later in the Solomons before World War II, and then met up with him in the Solomons again after the war ended.

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.

BREWIS Jill 
Colonial Fare
cover image of Colonial Fare, for sale in New Zealand

In which we learn of the amazing fortune and fate of pioneering women who ventured from their kitchens at home to embark upon a new life in the unknown territory of New Zealand.
What happened to European women after they arrived in the raw colony?
From their letters, diaries and cookbooks, the story of Colonial Women emerges.
Recording their struggles to find housing, food and friends, we learn how they kept food fresh without a refrigerator, how illnesses were treated without antibiotics and how they found entertainment without radio, tv or movies.
Pioneering women worked hard, often at backbreaking tasks like washing clothes without running water (let alone hot) or humping heavy iron cooking pots, and yet they recounted their happenings with humour and incredible optimism.
Some of their problems were unique: keeping the yeast alive, churning butter from pigeon fat, storing candles where rats would not eat them.
Other problems are the same as women face today: bearing loneliness and isolation, coping with culinary disasters, having the right clothes for the occasion and finding time to read.
An historical study of the daily life and work of colonial women in New Zealand in the nineteenth century.
Includes recipes and receipts for food, toiletries, medicine etc.

New Zealand Racism in the Making
The Life & Times of Walter Mantell

"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."

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.

A History of New Zealand Wine

A history of the wine industry in New Zealand. From the early 1820s vines were planted at various places in the Far North. Recounts the impact of Dalmatian immigrants, and the retarding influence of the Temperance movement and the aggression of the beer industry. If it weren't for Catholic priests, winemaking may have died out altogether. This carefully researched history uncovers the fascinating story of wine in this country and highlights the remarkable characters who believed in it and whose passion drove it forward, even in its darkest decades. Illustrated.
