In By Bible, Hammer and Compass historian and author Adrienne Puckey adds colour to Kerikeri's history.  

It's almost 200 years since the Church Missionary Society, led by the Reverend Samuel Marsden, arrived in the Bay of Islands to establish a mission at Kerikeri supported by Ngāpuhi chief Hongi Hika. 

Adrienne talks to Lynn Freeman about her late 18th Century forebears, brothers James and William Puckey's adventures in the Pacific as missionaries, carpenters and mariners.
