The History of Hawke's Bay

Authored by Matthew Wright
Edition: 1

Hawke's Bay has a remarkable history, brief by world standards, yet filled with colour, pace and life. This illustrated history covers the broadest sweep of Hawke's Bay's past, telling the wider tale of people and their ideals. It extends from the Maori history of the district to Hawke's Bay's rumbustuous settler era, the highs and lows of the twentieth century with its wars, depressions and booms; and the remarkable social transformations of the early twenty-first.
