Ask that Mountain: The Story of Parihaka
Journalist and historian Dick Scott broke new ground with ASK THAT MOUNTAIN. The book draws on official papers, settler manuscripts and oral histories to give the first complete account of what took place at Parihaka, the small settlement at the foot of Mount Taranaki where the chiefs Te Whiti and Tohu opposed the colonial government in the latter half of the nineteenth century - making one of the world's first recorded campaigns of passive resistance.
