Product Description

Gerald Barnett's new book about legendary broadcaster Leo Fowler brings Gisborne's 20th-century cultural history to life. "The Road to Turanga is both a 'partial life' of the bicultural pioneer Leo Fowler (1902-1976) and a fascinating account of Gisborne in the twentieth century. Historian, writer, and broadcaster by profession, Fowler established Maori broadcasting of the NZBC in the mid-1960s, giving it the kauapapa that has seen it flourish. That achievement was the culmination of a career full of incident and colour.
