This is an auction for FARING SOUTH by J H Lyon.

Sub-titled "Memoirs of a Pioneer Family including Gold Mini g in New Zealand and the Kokopu", this is the story of a family as told by the son of pioneer settlers, Bob and Bella Lyon. In the 1850s Bob, dissatisfied with conditions in Lancashire, emigrated to New Zealand, leaving his wife Bella and their two young boys, to join them after three years of separation.

Early Palmerston ?North, the surrounding districts and the daily life and times of a pioneer family unit. Giving the book a second dimension is an interesting section on gold mining, based on the personal experiences of the author who also worked in the bush, contracting and clearing native forest to develop land for farming. Thus the book is presented in three parts --- Faring South, Gold Mining and The Kokopu.
