Otaki Historical Society July 2016

MY16_Rex-book-coverA larger than usual audience gathered to hear Rex Kerr talk about the research for his most recent book, Not Only Te Rauparaha and Hadfield But Also…

He explained how he went about the research and the sources he used. Over 100 people, nearly all born in the nineteenth century, were selected for the book, and to demonstrate his topic he discussed a fascinating selection of them. Members were riveted and there were several questions afterwards — a very successful evening.
