When you talk about terrorism, most people in New Zealand think about problems overseas. But those in Gisborne and the East Coast merely cast their minds back to the Ruatoria Troubles. From 1985 until 1990 the township was terrorised by a cannabis-growing Maori sect calling itself the Rastafarians. Their story is one of the most bizarre chapters in modern New Zealand history. Yet most people have never heard of The Rastas or their reign of terror... until now.

About the Author:

Angus Gillies began his career in journalism at The Gisborne Herald in 1986. Every day it seemed the newspaper was filled with increasingly weird and outrageous stories about the Rastafarians. Since then he has always wanted to find out what really happened in Ruatoria and why. He later worked as a reporter for The Dominion, the Auckland Star and the Sunday News. He switched from print to television in 1993 and is currently a producer on 3 News. He has previously had published a novella, The Lizard Song, a book about New Zealand singer John Rowles and sports biographies on Justin Marshall, Matthew Ridge and Adam Parore. But he considers the three volumes that make up Ngati Dread his most important work to date.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Tui Emma Gillies (illustrator). 384 pages. This is the first in a three-volume series about the Ruatoria Rastafarians. The Rastas terrorised the small town of Ruatoria on the East Coast of New Zealands North Island from 1985 to 1990. During this time more than thirty buildings, including houses, businesses, the police and fire stations, a primary school, churches and a marae, were burned. One Rasta was beheaded by another and the leader of the sect was shot and later died on the operating table. Footsteps of Fire covers the early years of the Rastas reign of terror and their unique philosophy, which mixed the Rastafarian religion with Ringatu (started by the 19th century rebel prophet Te Kooti) and local Maori prophecies. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780473135225
