Celebrates the centennial of the establishment of the borough. A century ago the little town was recovering from the effects of the disastrous land wars: it was struggling to cope with basic problems such as roading, communication, the supply of essential facilities, fire protection, law and order: it was the market town of a rich agricultural area.
This is more than a record of local government's successes and failures. It is the story of 140 years of growth, prosperity, war and peace, triumph and disaster from the time the first settlers arrived in Ngamatu until the present day.
Well illustrated throughout, maps on end papers.
