Titokowaru is warrior, priest and leader of a people struggling for survival in the face of European land-hunger in New Zealand of the 1860s. An End of Honour is the story of his fight to stave off settler greed while he brings his people to accept the inevitable with honour. John Selby Hunter is an ex-Confederate cavalryman reluctantly involved by Governor George Grey in a process which, he comes to realise, is the antithesis of all hes been taught to believe in. An End of Honour moves from the battlefields of Taranaki to the campaigns of the American mid-West and back again via the society of colonial Auckland- it is the story of two highly-principled men who see beyond division, race and greed to find unity in the thought that, if one has no honour, one has nothing. Together, they dominate a story of real events that involved real New Zealanders only five generations ago- a story that echoes down to the present day.
