Abstract:

"Georgraphically speaking, Tua Marina and the waikakaho Valley in Marlborough, New Zealand, occupy a very small landmass, hugging as they do a small portion of the hills north of the Wairau Plain. In that context, the wealth of the district's history is nothing less than amazing. This is the story of a community which officially began with the surveying of the land for settlement in 1859. Back further to 1843 Tua Marina was also the place of the first and only clash between European and Maori in the South Island. In the 170 years since it has been richly productive across such diverse enterprises such as gold, flax, grains and seeds, cheese production, hops, bricks and more recently forestry and grapes."--Back cover.
