              The Paradise of All These Parts: A Natural History of Boston

              The Paradise of All These Parts: A Natural History of Boston (Hardback)

              In 1614, explorer John Smith sailed into what was to become Boston Harbor and referred to the wild lands and waters around him as the Paradise of all these parts. Within fifteen years, the Puritans were developing the tadpole-shaped Shawmut Peninsula, as members of the Massachuse...tt tribe fled. Now, nearly four hundred years later, one must wonder what remains of John Smith's Paradise. Equipped with wit, intellect, and an innate curiosity about people and places, John Hanson Mitchell strolls through Boston's streets, chronicling the nonhuman inhabitants and surprisingly diverse plant life, as well as the eccentric characters he meets at various turns. Using his modern observations as a starting point, he tells the fascinating stories of the tribal leaders, naturalists, community activists, and organizations who worked to preserve nature in the city over generations, from the Victory Gardens of the Fenway to the expansive woods of Franklin Park. But much of the history is in the land itself. As he battles traffic on notorious Route 128, Mitchell considers the ancient origins of the rocks that line the highway and those that form the city's foundation. A walk across Boston Common calls to mind the Tremount Hills, flattened by seventeenth-century newcomers; only Beacon Hill remains. A stroll through the Back Bay allows Mitchell to imagine the Charles River, so polluted by sewage that it became a public nuisance and was partially covered over with a massive nineteenth-century landfill. With this natural history in mind, Mitchell explores both ancient and new green space from Chelsea to South Boston, including the greenway formed by the Big Dig. Endlessly readable and full ofpersonality, The Paradise of All These Parts offers Boston visitors and residents alike a whole new perspective on one of America's oldest cities. Hands-on and eloquent - a lover's rhapsody. --Edward Hoagland A wonderful, surprising, and gracefully written exploration of Boston's true nature. If you l

              This volume consists of 28 biographies of chiefly whanau of Ngati Tama and Te Atiawa in Te Tau Ihu (Nelson-Marlborough). It ranges from northern Taranaki to the Kapiti coast and on to Te Tau Ihu, spanning the three or four generations in the 19th century. The book covers Maori co...nflicts and movements, early European contacts, conversion to Christianity, the New Zealand Company arrival, dealings with the Crown, gold rushes and the Taranaki Wars. As with all families, there were scandals and disasters as well as achievements and successes. The universal theme is whakapapa - underpinning taua and heke, the basis for kainga, and the reason for marriages. The material was gathered from whanau whakapapa books, Minutes of Native Land Court hearings, Maori letters, evidence in court cases and newspaper accounts, as well as official and unofficial European records and online resources
