The Jacksons of Te Awaiti 2001
This book was commissioned by the organisers of the Jackson Reunion 2000 - a reunion of the descendants of whaler James Jackson and his wife Eliza Roil. This couple had nine children, and ninety grandchildren, so to write about them all has been a mammoth undertaking.
It is a valuable historical document, shedding light on the history of Marlborough and Nelson, the whaling industry, and the relationships between the whalers and the Maori in the area.
