Come on Shore and We Will Kill and Eat You All: A New Zealand Story

#ad
Bloomsbury USA #ad - In this book, thompson explores cultural displacement through the ages and the fascinating history of Europeans in the South Pacific, which grows out of decades of reading and research, beginning with Abel Tasman's discovery of New Zealand in 1642 and Cook's circumnavigation of 1770. Come on shore and we will kill and eat you all is the story of the cultural collision between Westerners and the Maoris of New Zealand, told partly as a history of the complex and bloody period of contact between Europeans and the Maoris in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and partly as the story of Christina Thompson's marriage to a Maori man.

A beautifully written, fiercely intelligent and boldly conceived book that puts the author's unlikely marriage to a Maori man into the context of the history of Western colonization of New Zealand and the South Pacific. Yet at its core, it is the story of two people who meet, fall in love, and are forever changed.

Come on Shore and We Will Kill and Eat You All: A New Zealand Story #ad - A multilayered, highly informative and insightful book that blends memoir, historical and travel narrative. Vivid and meticulously researched. San francisco Chronicle. As an american graduate student studying history in Australia, Thompson traveled to New Zealand and met a Maori known as "Seven. Their relationship is one of opposites: he is a tradesman, she is an intellectual; he comes from a background of rural poverty, she from one of middleclass privilege; he is a "native, " she descends directly from "colonizers.
