In a small clearing of land nestled within the Wairau valley two peoples met; the recently established settlers of Nelson, and the governing tribe of that region - the renowned Ngati-Toa.
When they marched, both sides were prepared for confrontation...yet they weren't expecti...ng that their actions would drastically alter the future of the nation. Shaking both native Maori and settler populations alike, what occurred at Wairau made it clear throughout the Empire that not all was well within Britain's infant colony.Read more

"Gabriel Clutch was a thief and a liar but he was right about one thing. He told me he had a great secret in his collection that would shake the literary world to its roots if it ever got out." So begins the delightfully dark Snark, a tumultous romp through worlds created by Lewi...s Carroll and here brought to life through the vivid imaginings and art of author and illustrator David Elliot. What exactly did happen to the Snark expedition? Did his dagger-proof coat protect the Beaver from the Butcher? What befell the Boots in the Tulgey Wood? Who fell foul of the Jabberwock? The Bandersnatch? The Jubjub bird? And, finally, the big question: what precisely is a SNARK? David Elliot's hero, the Boots, here reveals the whole truth for the first time, from his recruitment to the Snark expedition, to his return from a journey of unimaginable, death-defying adventure.Read more
