An important early account of the New Zealand Company.

The author had arrived in Wellington in 1840 in command of the Aurora, bringing the first settlers of the New Zealand Company. Heale had a long career in the country, including serving as a Surveyor and Judge of the Native Land Court. 'His carefully prepared criticism of the company's scheme, it's haste, disregard for settlers' interests and concern for profit, is a masterly analysis of the first two years of operation' (NZNB).
