Collision, Compromise and Conversion during the Wesleyan Hokianga Mission, 1827–1855
Paperback | English
Early Hokianga was different. A unique blend of Ngapuhi Maori, kauri milling settlers, and Wesleyan missionaries.
Drawing upon modern scholarly insights, Methodist historian, Gary Clover, investigates the nature of culture change and Maori ‘conversion’ from 1827–1855 during New Zealand’s early contact era. He narrates an absorbing tale of Maori and Pakeha inter-relationships, colourful personalities, and their foresight and failures.
