Review: "When she embarked on a research project on tourism in Muriwhenua Dorothy Urlich Cloher discovered that she could not discuss this topic without going back far into the past. She describes this book as a 'story of beginnings, evolution and consolidation, applied to the people who make up the tribes of Muriwhenua'. It is a history of the Far North and the iwi Ngati Kuri, Te Aupouri, Ngai Takoto, Te Rarawa, Te Paatu and Ngati Kahu. Taking each of these one by one, she gives whakapapa and a variety of lively and dramatic stories, all of which have been discussed and agreed with local kaumatua. The stories have been expertly translated by Merimeri Penfold, widely respected for her knowledge of te reo and her literary skill."--Jacket.Summary: "A history of the Far North and the iwi Ngāti Kuri, Te Aupōuri, Ngāi Takoto, Te Rarawa, Te Paatu and Ngāti Kahu ...
