The story of these artists spans a full century, beginning soon after the signing of the Treaty of Waitaingi. They cover years of botanical discover; years of war and hardship and years of colonial solidarity. This text is full of lively and amusing accounts of daily life that feature an assortment of colourful characters. Bee Dawson culled diaries, letters and historical journals to provide this charming, often intimate, glimpse into New Zealand's past.
