Tall Spars, Steamers and Gum: A History of the Kaipara from Early European Settlement 1854 – 1947.
by Wayne Ryburn

Paperback, 1999/2006/7 reprint, 248pages, very good condition

The “mighty Kaipara’ Harbour and its hinterland is now a quiet, almost forgotten part of New Zealand, visited occasionally by probably only a small proportion of the million people of Auckland living less than an hour’s drive down State Highway 16 from Helensville.

This is the first comprehensive history of the Kaipara Harbour, which for three decades to 1907, was New Zealand’s leading timber export port.
