520 1  "As an American graduate student in Australia, Christina 
       Thompson traveled on holiday to New Zealand, where she met
       and fell in love with a Maori man." "Come on Shore and We 
       Will Kill and Eat You All is the story of Thompson's 
       unlikely marriage, but it also encompasses the history of 
       the complex and bloody period of contact between Europeans
       and Maoris in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth 
       centuries." "In this book, Thompson explores the meaning 
       of cross-cultural contact and the history of Europeans in 
       the South Pacific, beginning with Abel Tasman's discovery 
       of New Zealand in 1642 and James Cook's famous 
       circumnavigations of 1769-79. Transporting us back and 
       forth in time and around the world, from Australia to 
       Hawaii to New Zealand and finally to a New England house 
       with a history of its own, Come on Shore and We Will Kill 
       and Eat You All brings to life a lush variety of 
       characters and settings. Yet at its core, it is the story 
       of two people who, in making a life and a family together,
       bridge the gap between two worlds."--BOOK JACKET.
