Available for the first time in Maori. The latest in our series of New Zealand Classics, Katarina was first published in 1990. Based on the true story of Gavin Bishop's great aunt, Katarina is the fascinating story of a young Maori woman's life in the early 1860s. It tells of her long and treacherous journey from the Waikato to Otago to join her Scottish husband. This poignant story gives us a very clear insight into Katarina's conflicts between the old Maori ways and the 'new' Pakeha pioneer ways. It is also an amazing snapshot of the times - the land wars between the English and Tainui counter-pointed with the gold rush in Gabriel's Gully, Otago. Gavin Bishop's beautiful and authentic illustrations are even more stunning in this re-issue, having been rescanned and reproduced by the latest technology.
