The Coromandel Coast is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. With its white sands and crystal-clear waters, the coast is a paradise for tourists and locals alike. But this idyllic coast is also a battleground, a place where British settlers and the indigenous Maori people have been fighting for control for centuries. In this vividly written and beautifully illustrated book, John Masters takes readers on a journey from the bustling city of Auckland to the tranquil beaches of Waikato, revealing the stories of the people and the land on the Coromandel Coast.; 8vo; 281 pages.
