              A literary portrait of New Zealand's best-loved children's author Margaret Mahy's death on 23 July 2012 brought forth an unprecedented outpouring of grief and heartfelt tributes from around New Zealand and the world. Her passing at 76 was breaking news in the media, unstoppable t...hrough the social networks, noted by political leaders in Parliament and by children in classrooms throughout the country. Celebrated as a member of the Order of New Zealand (the country's highest civil honour), twice honorary Doctor of Letters and twice winner of Britain's Carnegie Medal for children's literature, Margaret was one of the world's leading authors for younger readers for four decades. In her own country she was popularly known as the writer in the multicoloured wig who wrote marvellously funny picture books and enchanted generations of school children. But internationally, she was primarily recognised for her ground-breaking young adult novels; anyone who heard her speak knew that she was also a brilliant essayist, an expert on children's literature, a scholar and philosopher. For many fellow writers, teachers and librarians she was a treasured friend, supportive, generous and wonderful company. For children, she was the storyteller supreme, warm, full of wonder, magic and mischief - and on their side. Her story had its fairy-tale elements. In 1968, a hard-pressed solo mother of two daughters, working as a librarian by day and writing long into the night, she was 'discovered' by a leading American publisher who flew 'to the end of the earth' to offer her a multi-book publishing contract.

              "When 27-year-old Londoner Sarah Mathew sailed for Sydney in 1831, seeing her married future in Australia, she had no idea that nine years later she would attend the founding of a new British colony a thousand miles to the east. By March 1840, she is in the Bay of Islands, joinin...g husband Felton Mathew, newly appointed New Zealand's first Surveyor-General. Adventurous and fit, she accompanies him on a perilous two-month voyage south in a 46ft cutter to identify a harbour suitable for Governor Hobson's first capital, by sail and on foot covering hundreds of miles from Whangarei to the Firth of Thames. On 18 September 1840, Sarah is the only woman ashore for the flag-raising ceremony and regatta celebrating the birth of Auckland. She will make her home on the shores of the chosen harbour, the beautiful Waitemata. Fate decrees otherwise. Felton's career falters, and his health declines. Widowed young, loyal to Felton in life and death, Sarah will eventually make three voyages around Cape Horn. A natural-born journalist, she keeps diaries of her colonial adventures. Her surviving journals and letters brilliantly cover long voyages under sail, Auckland's birth, the personalities and politics of its capital years. For the first time, Sarah Mathew's story as a respected, tough-minded, steadfast wife is told in full, recognising her invaluable contribution to New Zealand's pioneer narrative"--Back cover.
