Description

An Eyewitness History of New Zealand by Robin Bromby. 'This book gives a personalised history of the nation: the political battles, the social mores, disasters, crimes, tragedies and triumphs are all dramatically described by the journalists and other eyewitnesses who were there. Here you can relive the great events in New Zealand history. William Colenso reports on the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, James McIndoe details the discovery of gold at Gabriel's Gully, Corporal J. R. Page writes from the battlefields of the Boer War, Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett describes the Anzac landing at Gallipoli, and others tell of Hillary's conquest of Everest in 1953, and the amazing number of medals collected by the New Zealand team at the 1984 Olympic Games. As the author Robin Bromby says, 'this book is a testimony to journalism at its best', and it provides a mine of information for anyone interested in New Zealand history.
