People, People, People. A Brief History of New Zealand
‘New Zealand in the year 1200 was a land of trees and birds – and no people. The two main islands were covered nearly entirely in deep, dark, cool forest. New Zealand was entirely unknown to any people anywhere in the world.’ A very short history of New Zealand, this book covers many themes and is illustrated with an array of beautiful works of art. The themes include discovery, settlement, war, work, money, power, sex, love and play. People, People, People begins with the arrival of the first Polynesians and follows right through to the present day.
