This delightfully illustrated story designed for 4-7 year olds will make a great gift this Christmas.

A Wesleyan mission station in Northland has been raided, causing the missionaries to flee for their lives. A Māori war party is moving through the bush towards them, bringing a new danger. Chief Patuone has a decision to make – follow the tradition of his people and take the lives of the missionaries or follow the new message that is coming to his homeland.

This is the fourth story in this truly unique ‘Chronicles of Paki – Junior Series’, which narrates various stories from our nation’s early bicultural history. This Junior Series tells the stories also found in our existing series for older children.
