This book tells the story of New Zealand in a new way, paying greater attention to the lives of the ordinary people and their families than other histories have done. It also includes the previously untold stories of many of the young people who came to New Zealand, and tells of their role in its development. All the characters you would expect to find are here: Maui, Hone Heke, Governor Grey, Richard Seddon and Princess Te Puea. In addition there are people who are of New Zealand; the young Te Taniwha, who saw Captain Cook; and Christina McIlvride, who delivered the mail. With its wealth of information, The Story of New Zealand is a valuable source of material on New Zealand's social history. Above all, it is entertaining and interesting, a book which will be read with enjoyment by people of all ages.
