              Tom Ellison is the man behind the black jersey and silver fern of the All Blacks. He was the Mr Rugby of his era, a tremendous player who captained the All Blacks in 1893 (the first Maori to do so), captained, coached and selected teams, developed the role of the wing-forward whi...ch was to give New Zealand an enduring advantage and wrote one of the fifi rst instructional books on rugby. His views were respected nationally and he was widely quoted. His story is rich in individuals and incident. His great-grandfather was chief Taiaroa of Ngai Tahu, his grandfather Edward Weller the whaler of Otakou and his father Raniera the discoverer of gold at Maori Point on the Shotover River. Tom Ellison went from Te Aute College to Wellington to become one of the fifi rst Maori lawyers. He had a myriad of interests and brought energy and fresh vision to them all. This is the story of his life.

              The illegitimate baby of an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, Tom Ryan and his family were banished from Ireland to the far ends of the earth: New Zealand. He went on to score the first points for the first All Blacks rugby team and have a huge influence on the development of tourism servi...ces in Taupo. He became a distinguished artist, creating rare sketches of the controversial Maori warrior Te Kooti, and he married the daughter of a Maori chief. He won one of the first inter-colonial yachting contests and became director of a mining company. From the author of New Zealand By Foot and New Zealand Adventures By Rail, this is the remarkable story of Tom 'Darby' Ryan. Including photographs and Ryan's own artworks, The Good Citizen paints a vivid and intimate portrait of early colonial New Zealand and the people who made up its society.
