Cricketing Colonists (Canterbury University Press) is a double biography of the Brittan brothers, William and Joseph, who were leading public figures in early Christchurch but are now virtually forgotten. William Guise Brittan was the first to pay for land in the Canterbury settlement, and chaired the Society of Canterbury Colonists. Joseph established a newspaper, the Canterbury Standard, and was provincial secretary for FitzGerald.
