Publisher Description

This book begins with an account of efforts to bring about the 2002 return of the bones of Bishop Pompallier, from France to New Zealand. It is a tale (based on fact) of a man loved through the generations.

It is an also an account of the work of Bishop Pompallier and other missionaries in New Zealand. The author has drawn on her thesis for the degree of Master of Philosophy (New Zealand 2010) and extended the story of the French Connection.

The story starts backwards, with the 2002 event and leads on to beginnings that commenced with mutual appreciation between Maori and Bishop Pompallier). An artist whose ancestors are linked to Bishop Pompallier created artwork especially for the front cover.
