Novel.

"New Zealand - 1859. The Pakeha wanted land. The Māori stopped selling. The Pakeha were desperate to buy. Quarrels developed. Whero, a young Te Atiawa Māori warrior, crosses paths with Jack O'Malley, a young Irish whaler. When New Zealand deteriorates into a war brought on by the Colonial Government's lust for fertile Māori land, the two are asked to question where their true loyalties lie. This is their story, of their friendship and the fight for the land of New Zealand, which they both call home"--Back cover.
