My father John L Andrews published a book titled "The Wairau Massace" in 1999. He had made a long and extended study of the incident at Tua Marina and this book is his summation of the facts as he saw it. An interesting read for any one keen to learn more about the scrap. I do have a few copies left Cost $30 plus postage. I can be contacted by e-mail or phone (035785580) kevinandrews1948@xtra.co.nz
