from back cover:

...Sir Charles Fleming has drawn on research papers scattered through specialized scientific journals and on his own knowledge gained through a lifetime's work at the New Zealand Geological Survey, studying the fossil record of life. He tells here the story of this country's first two hundred million years of life, from its earliest beginnings as a small piece in the jig-saw continent of Gondwanaland, till the coming of human colonists a thousand years ago put an end to an ecology of isolation.
Such dramatic changes have taken place in New Zealand's shape and its climate that fossil coconuts can be found here, or the fossil remains of a seal that today is found only in Antarctica. Mountains are built and eroded away - ice ages come and go - creatures like the plesiosaur flourish and vanish, or like the tuatara survive against all the odds.
New Zealanders who enjoy their remarkable nature heritage will gain from this book a new appreciation of the importance of guarding it for future generations.
