Rate this:
"Porangahau in Hawke's Bay is a significant coastal district, long settled by Ngati Kere iwi and later by high profile early colonisers. As such generations of families who call it 'home' ripple around New Zealand. Like its highly successful predecessors 'Hakui Mothers Of Porangahau' and 'Tuahine Sisters Of Porangahau,' the book is a compilation of family- written stories initiated by local women Marina Sciascia and Hilary Pedersen of Te Hanganui Partnership (The Work Of Two). 'Matatoa Fathers And Sons' is packed with information. Whakapapa, genealogy, early history and personal recollections sit side by side contained within 450 pages and 300 photographs. Nineteen stories are featured, among them the Te Atua, Tipene, Tutaki, Kuru and Wakefield families along with early colonial settlers including the Cannings of 'Oakbourne, Ormonds of Wallingford, Hunters of Porangahau and John White. Later arrivals the Stoddart and Willis families along with the Mouats of Mangaorapa Station also tell their stories"--Publisher's description.
