Our Stories: The Way We Used To Be: The New Zealand That Time Forgot...

Author(s): Ian Wishart (Editor)

NZ - History

Every day, thousands of news stories are published in New Zealand, chronicling the big events and the small. Most of these stories are long forgotten by the time historians get around to compiling the ‘official’ record of our country. In Our Stories, author and journalist Ian Wishart brings out the most fascinating forgotten tales of our past, told through the eyes of the people who were there. Read about the tsunamis that washed away the homes and lives of our early European immigrants, or the earthquakes that toppled Christchurch buildings more than a century ago and lifted Wellington out of the sea. Read the real story about the search for gold, or the visiting circuses whose lions and leopards escaped, or the dinosaur found on a Taranaki riverbank. Discover the heroes and villains of our past through long forgotten news stories, and find out how life really was in pioneer New Zealand. These, and many more, are our stories...
