In the early part of the last century several thousand runaway seamen and escaped convicts settled in Maori communities. Jacky Mormon, John Rutherford, Charlotte Badger and many others -- this is their largely untold story. They were regarded as unsavoury renegades by the European settlers, but amongst Maori they were welcomed. Many Pakeha Maori took wives and were treated as Maori, others were treated as slaves. Some received the moko, the facial tattoo. Others became virtual white chiefs and fought in battle with their adopted tribe, a few even against European soldiers. In this, the first ever book devoted soley to the Pakeha Maori, Trevor Bentley describes in fascinating detail how these strangers entered Maori communities, adapted to tribal life and played a significant role in the merging of two cultures." -- Back cover.
