Cover subtitle: New Zealand's biggest earthquake.

"The biggest earthquake ever recorded in New Zealand occurred on 23 January 1855. It was centred in Wellington and the Wairarapa but its impact far-reaching, north as far as Taranaki and south beyond Nelson and Marlborough. Magnitude eight plus tells the exciting - and frightening - story of this extraordinary quake."--Back cover.
