From the blurb on the back:

In this sequel to 'No one went to town,' the Tarrants are clearing land near Piopio in the King Country, New Zealand. At first the conditions are too tough for May and her mother, who spend the winter in Te Kuiti, then land rush town.

Staying at the Grand Hotel is exciting, and May sees her first moving picture and is invited to a Maori wedding.

In the spring she travels by coach to Piopio and out to the Paemako farm by coach and sledge. Now that she is nine, May is old enough to turn the grindstone, milk the cows and ride a horse - and old enough to get caned for disobeying the teacher at her bush school. She becomes a proper King Country girl.

'Black Boots and Buttonhooks' is a true story, based on the recollections of the author's family.

FUN FACT: Queen Bead now lives in the same valley as May did in the first book in the Taranaki hill country!
