The History of Hawke’s Bay

The History of Hawke’s Bay spans centuries and people, a tale of settlement, wars, and colonial hopes.

I have written extensively on this district throughout my writing career – seven books, a regular newspaper column, and innumerable articles. This all new and profusely illustrated 260-page book offers a unique overview of the history of this remarkable district from its geological origins to the wild cowboy world of the colonists, the disasters of earthquake and world wars, through to the lifestyle province of the twenty-first century.
