A small but priceless addition to the historical record of early New Zealand, this unique book was published to recognize New Zealand's guest-of-honor status at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair. Beautifully illustrated with paintings and photographs from the 19th century, this account includes the astonishing letters of a 22-year-old adventurous German settler in early New Zealand. These letters describe the people, landscapes, and birds of early Wellington, Wairarapa, and Kapiti as he travelled on foot and horse around the lower and central North Island.
