My Seventy Years on the Chatham Islands

Author(s): David Holmes

NZ Chatham Islands & Moriori | Secondhand

In this book, the author explains how the Moriori left their imprint on the islands, and he tells how the coasts came to be littered with trypots, stone fireplaces and the bones of sea mammals. He gives a graphic account of the acivities of a mixed race fishing and farming community which, against all odds, has evolved its own culture and thrived for more than 150 years.
