Author(s): Coromandel Town History Group
A meticulously researched and edited history of the Coromandel Peninsula, from the pre-European time to community activities of today. This book covers chruches and spiritual gropus, Community gropus and service clubs, community servives, environmental groups, information services, performing arts and crafts, primary production, recreational groups and sports groups. Coromandel has always attracted a wide variety of people, from gold miners to farmers through to artists and writers, and this book acknowledges the special contribution they have all made to the area. As Fay Waldon writes in the foreword: " The scarlet pohutukawa tress still fringe the rocky shores, white surf against black rocks, the golden age is alive and well and living not in the head, but in the reality of todays' Coromandel".
