Titirangi : fringe of heaven by Marc Bonny( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Titirangi, probably Auckland's most beautiful suburb and on the edge of the dramatic Waitakere Ranges, is truly the 'fringe of heaven'. This richly illustrated book, compiled over many years by the West Auckland Historical Society, tracks the area's evolution from successive Maori settlements, the first European arrivals, forest clearings and the beginnings of Titirangi village through to the post-war era when artists and writers began gravitating to the community as its regenerating forest reached for the sky. Titirangi: Fringe of Heaven collects specialist accounts of Maori history, prominent settlers, architecture, the arts and the environment with personal recollections of Titirangi life

Henderson : heart of the west by Vivien Burgess( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early pioneers extracted and left. What was needed for a prosperous and sustainable life required settlement, stability and commitment. This came from those who remained from the milling years, joined by a diverse mix of settlers from Lebanon, Croatia, the Netherlands, and the war-weary returning home. The earlier pioneers brought the skills and experience of harsh landscapes, meagre conditions and experience in hard physical labour. Succeeding waves of international and domestic migrants, along with the descendants of the early settlers, created a new post World War II mix of entrepreneurs. This developed local business, yet many residents worked outside the town as population boomed."--Book flap
