- Moore describes the life and customs of Māori living in the coastal region between Kopuni to Kaiaua in the 1880s and draws from the reminiscences of Mrs A. G. Hall who taught at Tolaga Bay School from 1883-84. She includes details of fishing, gathering karaka and tutu berries, drying kumara and other food preparations which kept the family pataka or storehouse well-filled. She also briefly discusses land cultivation, the production of wheat, and some family anecdotes.
