Two hundred and twenty years after Captain Cooks first tour of New Zealand, Dick Parsons takes us on a more comfortable voyage of discovery round the north and south islands. He gives us a fascinating insight into the lifehuman, animal and botanicalof this green and majestic land on the other side of the world. From ninety-mile beach in the far north to Dunedin via the Southern Alps, forests, inlets, glaciers, lakes, and islandseven the elusive Mt. Cookare recorded in fine detail. Birds, beasts, and marine life, plus the impact of manwhether Maori, Scots, or Englishare described and commented on with fairness and good humor. There is much to be admired about the Kiwis, not only their all-conquering All Blacks, but their great spirit of enterprise, for when Britain breaking its commercial ties with the Commonwealth, joined the European Common Market, the resourceful Kiwis rose to the challenge and forged strong economic links with Pacific Rim countries. Britain now initiating BREXIT, can learn much from our enterprising Kiwi friends.
