              "Set during the bloody intertribal Musket Wars (1818-1839) and the Anglo-Maori New Zealand Wars (1845-46 and 1860-1872), this book reveals a hitherto unknown dimension of this country's military history. It brings to light the various ways Maori acquired, mastered and deployed sh...ips artillery, ceremonially in times of peace, and as instruments of destruction in offensive and defensive warfare. It resurrects or reconstructs long forgotten accounts of tribal artillery pieces, artillerymen and artillery battles, whose details were known throughout old tribal New Zealand"--Publisher information.

              Hunting is the practice of pursuing living animals (usually wildlife) for food, recreation or trade. In present-day use, the term refers to lawful hunting. Hobby is an activity carried out in one's spare time, for pleasure or relaxation. Put the two together and you have the most... fun you can have with your pants on. Join the author on some of his hunts around New Zealand as he actively pursues his hobby - hunting for Red deer, Chamois, Tahr and the ultimate trophy - Wapiti. All taken and hunted on public land, over the past fifteen years. The author has recently married and is currently on an extended OE but strangely enough finds himself back in New Zealand every year just in time for the roar!

              Pakeha Slaves, Maori Masters: The forgotten story of New Zealand's White Slaves (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Slavery in the popular imagination has always been associated with the enslavement of Africans, and with good reason. Slavery however, is universal and not something that only white people did to black people. Throughout history, slavery has been practiced in many different forms... and Maori slavery readily fits definitions of slavery elsewhere in world. This book discusses Pakeha (European) vassals or demi-slaves. Its main focus is the Europeans who lived and sometimes died as slaves in tribal New Zealand between the 1790s and 1880s. It examines when, where, why and how Maori obtained these slaves and the types of Europeans seized. It explores the diverse slave roles performed by white slaves, their sale prices and the immediate and long term physical and psychological effects of their servitude. Using published histories by hapu and iwi historians and writings on customary law by Maori scholars, captivity narratives by returned Pakeha slaves, and contemporary accounts about white slaves in newspapers, journals, letters and logs historian Trevor Bentley paints a vivid picture of the interaction between Maori and Pakeha and life in the early days of the colony.
