While the British were sending settlers to the North Island in 1840, the French were sending them to the South Island. This book looks at the elaborate French government-backed plans to settle and annex 'Southern New Zealand' - and at what the French did when they found the British had got there first. The lives of the French (and German) men, women and children who ended up creating little settlements in Akaroa Harbour is a major focus of this fascinating book, which also explains some of the French heritage that attracts so many tourists to the Banks Peninsula town of Akaroa today. Originally published in 1990, this second edition has been extensively updated and enlarged.
