The isthmus between two harbours on which modern Auckland now stands and which Maori called Tamaki-makau-rau was a virtual population void when Hobson bought it in 1840 from the resident owners as the site of his new capital. But it was reputed in former times to be the most densely settled region in Aotearoa. From Tamaki-makau-rau to Auckland explains that paradox. It traces the history of the region from the beginnings of settlement about 800 years ago up to 1840. It uses parallel and often corrobative versions drawn from Maori oral traditions and Land Court records, and from the work of archaeologists and pre-historians.

Maori Auckland is synonymous with Ngati Whatua, or so it seems. However, there is a much longer and far more contentious history of the area which challenges this assumption, and raises the possibility of several other tribes staking a claim for dominion over Auckland.This book offers a concise survey of Auckland's history in the centuries before European involvement. From the first Polynesian arrivals, through to the growth of the isthmus, and the devastating invasion that altered its entire political make-up in the mid-I 700s, The Struggle for Tamaki Makaurau uncovers a truly fascinating history of the region, and will cause many Aucklanders to see their city, and the current Treaty claims, in an entirely new light.

The Auckland area has many wondrous landmarks, passageways, caves and pa sites. Accompanying these formations are equally wondrous tales of how they were formed, whether it be by natural forces or by the ancient Maori people who lived in the area. The myths and legends in this collection are retold here as they might have been in earlier times. There are stories of enemies sworn, of taniwha roaring, of lovers forlorn, of courageous people and of landmarks that are today explored by many visitors and residents of New Zealand's largest city.

In Logan Campbell's Auckland, Russell Stone, the doyen of Auckland historians and author of the award-winning From Tamaki-makau-rau to Auckland, recounts 15 tales from his encyclopaedic knowledge of nineteenth-century Auckland. They include the stories of the tree on One Tree Hill, of a newspaper printed on a mangle, of two aborted duels, the mystery of a suicide, of the voyage of an early immigrant ship, of the wreck of the Orpheus, of how Ngati Whatua became the tangata whenua of the area, and more. Logan Campbell's Auckland not only entertains but also gives a real sense of how Auckland changed during those crucial early years. Stone strikes the right balance between story telling and historical insight and provides easy navigation for the modern day general reader by relating present day incidents to the past - for example, Mike Smith's attack on the One Tree - or past incidents to their present day locations - topically, How Rugby came ashore and found its way to Eden Park. In his characteristically elegant style Stone brings personalities, feuds and dramas brilliantly to life. This handsome book is vividly illustrated in black and white and colour.
