Gordon McLauchlan tempts our imagination with 46 little-known tales from New Zealand's past. Here you will discover that: Auckland applied twice to the Colonial Office to be a separate colony from the... rest of New Zealand, more about the man who wanted to be James Cook, when drinking beer legally became an 'art' on the West Coast, whether Kupe was man or myth, how Hawera seceded and became a republic, when and why the Americans planned to invade New Zealand, which aviation heroine was called a 'naughty girl who deserved a spanking', why a posse of politicians committed suicide...and more. This great collection of tales explores these and many more questions and issues which have fascinated New Zealanders and filled many a page in many a history book over the years. Gordon McLauchlan, a master storyteller who recognises a good yarn when he sees it, brings a fresh perspective on some old and often vexed periods in New Zealand's history.

These products are due for release on the date shown. Many books have a specific release date that we must comply with, so these titles are not available to purchase unless the release date has been reached, and stock has been delivered on time.

When we can, we dispatch your pre order on the evening before the product is released. Depending on your delivery address, these orders can be delivered the very next day.

What happens if the goods are damaged when I open them up?

Should any damage be found after opening your parcel due to the damage being concealed (i.e. not obvious due to packaging) please notify Whitcoulls within 24 hours of delivery. We can discuss replacement or refund options, and will have the courier driver collect the damaged item and return it to us. Please Contact Us
