The uplifted coral atoll Niue, all 260 square kilometres of it, lies in the South Pacific. Far from the main shipping routes, its steep cliffs rising from the ocean, Cookâ€™s â€œSavage Islandâ€ was not an inviting proposition, yet it has a rich history of European contact. As the wife of New Zealandâ€™s High Commissioner to Niue, Margaret Pointer spent several years there and has now produced a highly readable 200-year history of Niue up to the establishment of self-government in 1974. Damon Salesa leads the discussion. A part of the Auckland Writers Festival.
