[Bibliographical References: Taylor, "Early Travellers in New Zealand" (1959), pp. 420-426 - "It is, on the face of it, strange that such an excursion should have been made at this time. By the end of 1864 there had been a lull of some months in the war with the Maoris, but the central Lake district had been deserted by the pakeha for over a year"; Bagnall 3478 - "After getting as far south as Waihaha, West Taupo, Meade himself attempted to return to Waikato outposts via Oruanui and Waipapa but was captured by Hauhaus. He was saved only through the intercession of Ahumai a thrice bayoneted woman veteran of Orakau. Much valuable information on the country and a rapidly changing pattern of loyalties, all graphically recounted." ]; 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 5160
