Before the Maori tribes of New Zealand and the government descended into hostilities, the governor, Sir George Grey, and a Maori chief, Iwikau Te Heu, journeyed together from Auckland to Taupo in 1849-1850. This book explores their travels and sheds light on the interaction between the respective cultures of Grey and Iwikau, with a special focus on the custom and law of the time.
