Summary
The first shots fired by government troops on Maori defenders in Te Kohia pa, Waitara, on 17 March 1860 marked the start of twenty-one years of unrest for the people of Taranaki. This book presents fresh and engaging insights into this turbulent period - the events, the controversies and the characters. Richly illustrated with photographs art and artefacts, including many that have not been published previously, this book is a valuable work on a pivotal period in New Zealand's history
