Conquistador Puzzle Trail by Winston Cowie
I have recently completed writing this non fiction book which will change how Australians and New Zealanders view our history. It introduces 20 puzzle pieces that make up the ‘Conquistador puzzle,’ the conclusion of which is that the Portuguese most likely, and on the balance of probabilities, discovered New Zealand and Australia, over 82 years before Willem Janszoon, 118 years before Abel Tasman, and 245 years before James Cook. It is a modern day adventure in that it contains excerpts of my activities in getting to the bottom of each puzzle piece, as presented in the fascinating feature documentary ‘Mystery at Midge Bay – Discovering New Zealand’s oldest shipwreck.’ It includes the likes of discovering old shipwrecks in Dargaville, chilling oral tradition in respect of buried Spanish helmets, pohutukawa trees in Spain, and the search for a buried treasure.
