John Rutherford, the white chief


Chapter 30, entitled The Strange Story of John Rutherford — Ten Years a Captive Among the Maoris begins: "An Englishman named John Rutherford, according to his own account, spent ten years of his life among the natives of New Zealand as a captive on parole, having been married into and adopted by a tribe on the East Coast. He returned to England in 1828, and was exhibited there for gain. During his voyage to his native land he dictated to a friend an account of his varied adventures, which was published in part in the year 1830."
