Description of this Electronic Book

Award-winning writers Geoff Chapple, Claudia Orange, Anne Salmond and Dick Scott explore pivotal moments in New Zealand's history in this bundle of BWB Texts.

These four works are combined into one easy-to-read e-book, available direct and DRM-free from our website or from international e-book retailers.

In When the Tour Came to Auckland Geoff Chapple describes the startling scenes as the Springbok rugby tour of New Zealand in 1981 comes to a violent conclusion.

In What Happened at Waitangi? Claudia Orange explains the events on the ground that led to the signing of the Treaty on 6 February 1840.

Anne Salmond's First Contact details the dramatic visit of Dutch ships led by Abel Tasman to Golden Bay at the top of the South Island in 1642, and the meeting of Maori and European worlds.

Dick Scott's Parihaka Invaded describes the non-violent defiance of Te Whiti-o-Rongomai, Tohu Kakahi and their followers at Parihaka and is one of the great New Zealand narratives.

BWB Texts are short books on big subjects by great New Zealand writers. Commissioned as short digital-first works, BWB Texts unlock diverse stories, insights and analysis from the best of our past, present and future New Zealand writing.

Author's Bio

Geoff Chapple is a journalist, author and musician. He was arrested twice during the Springbok tour, and convicted of disorderly behaviour. He became known subsequently as the founder of the Te Araroa trail. Claudia Orange is the Practice Leader Research at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, having previously headed the museum's History and Pacific Cultures section. She was appointed the OBE in 1993, received the University of Auckland's Distinguished Alumni Award in 1997, and was awarded the honour of Distinguished Companion of the Order of New Zealand in 2009. Anne Salmond is Distinguished Professor at the University of Auckland. One of New Zealand's most prominent anthropologists and historians, Professor Salmond is the author of the award-winning works Two Worlds: First Meetings Between Maori and Europeans, 1642-1772; Between Worlds: Early Exchanges between Maori and Europeans, 1775-1815; The Trial of the Cannibal Dog: Captain Cook in the South Seas; Aphrodite's Island: The European Discovery of Tahiti; and Bligh: William Bligh in the South Seas. Dick Scott is a journalist, writer, historian and publisher and the author of a number of important works of New Zealand history. These include 151 Days (1954), his account of the 1951 Waterfront Dispute; The Parihaka Story (1954); and Ask That Mountain (1975), from which the extract republished in his BWB Text is taken. He is also the author of Seven Lives on Salt River (1987), an account of seven families who settled in the Kaipara district, which won the 1988 New Zealand Book Award, and his autobiography, A Radical Writer's Life (2004).
