About this title:

Synopsis: Tiny Niue lies alone in the south Pacific, a single island with formidable cliffs rising from the deep ocean. Far from the main shipping routes and with a daunting reputation, “Savage Island” did not naturally invite visitors. Yet Niue has a surprisingly rich history of contact, from the brief landings by James Cook in 1774 through to the 19th-century visits by whalers, traders, and missionaries, and into the 20th century when New Zealand extended its territory to include the Cook Islands and Niue. To date, this story has not been told. Using a wide range of archival material from Niue, New Zealand, Australia, and Britain, Margaret Pointer places Niue center stage in an entertaining and thoroughly readable account of this island nation through to 1974, when Niue became self-governing. As important as the written story is the visual record, and many remarkable images are published here for the first time. Together, text and images unravel a fascinating and colorful Pacific story of Nukututaha, the island that stands alone.

About the Author: Margaret Pointer has been involved, since the late 1990s, in research to trace the lost story of Niue Island’s involvement in World War I. The resulting exhibition and book rekindled a passion for further historical research and led to this larger publication. She was awarded a Copyright Licensing New Zealand Writers’ Award in 2013, to help fund what the selection panel described as “a ground-breaking piece of work.”
