About this Item

303 pages. Endpaper maps, col;oured and b/w illustrations, signed by author on title page. This absorbing book, which completes a trilogy begun with WAIKANAE [1988] and continued with TARARUA [1994], looks beyond popular perceptions of Kapiti.KAPITI provides a fascinating, well-researched account of this remarkable island.In tracing the past, Chris Maclean also tells the story of New Zealand's conservation movement. Just as the struggle to create a safe place for endangered birds reflected national concern, so Kapiti's history of Maori and European occupation mirrors wider issues that face the country as a whole. Their resolution on Kapiti could be an example for other communities, a model for the nation. Bookseller Inventory # 007876
