|Shadow of the Boyd|
(Harper Collins, 2010)
Menefy took much of her information from old shipping documents but had to rely on imagination to fill in most of the details. The result is an engaging read but a brutal one. Menefy did well to describe the massacre simply but without too much gore. The way the survivors lived with the Maori people after the massacre was fascinating.
This is a good read for those interested in New Zealand history.
