Between worlds: early exchanges between Maori and Europeans 1773-1815.
This book is the sequel to Salmond's earlier work Two worlds published in 1991 which described events in New Zealand up to and including Cook's First voyage in the Endeavour. In this book Salmond deals with Cook's other two voyages in some detail before going on to describe the contacts between Maori and the waves of Europeans who followed, including sealers and whalers, missionaries and timbermen.
The Journals of Cook, Banks, Sparrman, Samwell, Foster and others on Cook's ships are used to show the European perspective with Maori descriptions being interspersed to give their versions of events. The whole makes for an interesting telling of Cook's time in New Zealand.
The rest of the book brings to light many events in the subsequent history of New Zealand that have often been overlooked or sometimes mis-represented concerning Maori's role in them.
