Focusing on coastal shipping and flourmilling, which were spectacularly successful in the 1840s and 1850s, it shows how quickly and effectively Maori adapted to accommodate and develop capital-intensive investments and how chiefly entrepreneurs harnessed tribal resources and existing skills, with a keen eye for commercial advantage. It also describes how their economic success declined suddenly from 1856 when the produce market collapsed, sailing ships were superseded by steam, and Maori ways were overwhelmed by a rapidly increasing and individualistic Pakeha population."--BOOK JACKET
