  • About the Book
  • Colonising New Zealand was as much of a search for wealth as an imperial venture. Rush to Riches: Kauri and Gold explains the history and processes of the gold and kauri industries, and introduces famous characters who toiled to make it rich. Plentiful illustrations and information boxes explain how these industries have shaped our society and left their mark on our environment.
