Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Working on a research project into tourism in Muriwhenua, the author felt it was impossible to discuss this topic without starting from the beginning and she describes this book as a story of beginnings, evolution and consolidation, applied to the people who make up the tribes of Muriwhenua."

Added t.p. title: The tribes of Muriwhenua = Nga iwi o Muriwhenua.
