Horouta is the definitive history of the descendants of the voyaging canoes that brought the first settlers from Polynesia to the lands that stretch from East Cape to northern Hawke's Bay.Assembled through painstaking historical and genealogical research over more than 70 years b...y Rongowhakaata Halbert and his family, the book includes extensive chapters based on oral and written history about the settlement of the East Coast, along with the most extensive genealogy charts for the region, and detailed maps of lands in the region.This outstanding work of scholarship is destined to serve the needs of all New Zealanders, and especially the peoples of Gisborne and the East Coast, for generations to come.
