Sir Apirana Ngata (1874-1950), Member of Parliament for nearly forty years and a cabinet minister, and Sir Peter Buck (1877-1951), a medical practitioner and politician turned anthropoligist, wrote to each other faithfully for a quarter of a century. Through their eloquent correspondence emerges not only a moving account of the lives of two highly notable Maoris, but also a vivid picture of the politics, Maori affairs, and Polynesian culture of the time.
