Description of this Book

Titirangi, probably Auckland's most beautiful suburb and on the edge of the dramatic Waitakere Ranges, is truly the 'fringe of heaven'. This richly illustrated book, compiled over many years by the West Auckland Historical Society, tracks the area's evolution from successive Maori settlements, the first European arrivals, forest clearings and the beginnings of Titirangi village through to the post-war era when artists and writers began gravitating to the community as its regenerating forest reached for the sky. Titirangi: Fringe of Heaven collects specialist accounts of Maori history, prominent settlers, architecture, the arts and the environment with personal recollections of Titirangi life. A must for anyone with a connection to this beautiful area or with an interest in the arts and environment.
