First published in 1980 and written by Mrs Parkes and Kath Hislop, Taieri Mouth and its surrounding districts 1840-2018 consists of two parts.

The first is a reprint of the original history and the second part spans 1980 to 2018 and includes more than 120 photos and stories of people who have lived, worked and played in the area.

Amenity society members started working on the updated book in 2012, to ensure the history of the area was retained.

A launch event was held at the Leitch Memorial Hall last night.

Allied Press, publisher of the Otago Daily Times has allowed photos from its archives to be used in the book.
