"As we approached Atiamuri there came into view the old Maori stronghold, Powhateroa [sic: Pohaturoa], round whose feet the river runs. Pine forest clothes its cone-shaped sides and out of them, as though the top had been pushed up by a giant's finger, rise sheer cliffs capped again with pines. `Like the head of a Fijian warrior' was the description we heard."
