This book tells for the first time the inside story of the largest of the Danish settlements, Mauriceville, in the Wairarapa District. The author describes, from first hand sources or personal experience, the background of the recruitment of Danes, Norwegians and Swedes under Vogel’s Public works and Immigration policy, their long journey to NZ, their settlement in the lonely untouched bush, and how they succeeded in their task of setting up homes and clearing the land.
