Colonising New Zealand was as much of a search for wealth as an imperial venture. The rush to exploit the country's gold and kauri is a story of innovation and determination, as well as suspicion and ... thuggery. The rushes of both industries drew Maori and British, and also Americans, Australians, Dalmatians and Chinese to these shores. They brought their various cultures and adapted technology to extract their desired riches - kauri timber and gum from forests and fields in the north, gold from the rivers and mountains mostly in the south. Rush to Riches: Kauri and Gold explains the history and processes of both these formative industries, along with characters that became famous and infamous as they toiled to become rich. Plentiful illustrations and information boxes show how these industries shaped our society and left their mark on our environment.

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.

Pre Order There’s nothing like eagerly anticipating a new release, so where we can, we offer pre orders to ensure you don’t miss out. 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
