The book is the first full English translation of the surviving Mangakāhia journals and letters of French Marist priest Father Antoine Garin, who was sent to run the remote Mangakāhia station on the banks of the Wairoa River.
The three years of Garin’s diary have been translated into English and annotated by Peter Tremewan and Giselle Larcombe, making this valuable primary source accessible to historians and general readers.
“I discovered some of his writings in Rome and Giselle wrote a biography on him in 2009. All his writing was in French, of course. Over the course of four to five years, we translated his diaries covering 1844-1846 so that English speakers can benefit from these resources,” Tremewan says.
To be in to win a copy of this beautiful book for your own collection, simply answer the following question:

The UC Health Centre | Whare Hauora o UC is now offering Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations to all UC students and staff who have:
never been vaccinated
only had one MMR vaccination.
Note – international students will be charged $25 per MMR vaccine.
If you’re not sure if you’ve been immunised for measles contact the UC Health Centre if you are enrolled there, or your General Practitioner (GP) – they can check your vaccination history.
People born before 1969 are considered to be low risk and do not require vaccination. Many of this group will have had measles.
The number of confirmed measles cases in Canterbury is now at 37, with a further nine cases being investigated.
Measles is a serious and highly infectious illness that spreads easily from person to person through the air, and can be caught simply by being in the same room as someone with measles. Read more about immunisation and symptoms here.
