Letters from the Bay of Islands by Caroline Fitzgerald

Book Description

In 1822, nearly twenty years before the Treaty of Waitangi imposed British control over Maori land, Marianne Williams, her husband, Henry, a missionary, and their three children, left England bound for the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. A year later they arrived at a remote one-house settlement, where, under the watchful eye of the local Maori chief, they remained for the next thirty years. Letters to her family in England were sent by services so irregular that it often took 18 months to get a reply. These letters tell Marianne's story. Her courage and uncomplaining determination shine through. She describes, in vivid and compelling detail, the hardships and joys of their daily lives, their relationship with the Maoris and the battles between different tribes.
