A history of the earliest inhabitants of the east and south of the South Island by a most interesting historian. The title is somewhat dated, Moriori is the name now reserved for the original inhabitants of the Chatham Islands, but in Beattie's day it was commonly used for the earliest people of Te Wai Pounamu. First published in 1941, this is a facsimile reprint with a new index of Maori words.
