This is an auction for LANDMARKS: HOW NEW ZEALANDERS REMADE THEIR LANDSCAPE, by Kenneth B Cumberland.

This book was developed in conjunction with the documentary series of the same title, produced by Television New Zealand, and made over three years in the period 1978-81.

From the Introduction:

"The fascinating story of how New Zealand's superb scenery was created, by nature and by man, is little known. And it is a story that has barely begun. In some ways, the country is still undeveloped. The landscape is on the threshold of further change. New Zealand could be on the verge of very much greater heights of material, social and cultural achievement. In a world of energy crises, food crises and electronic technology, New Zealand has many advantages. Adversity and opportunity may well be the stimuli to rapid progress and to the addition of spectacular new landmarks in the last generation of the 20th century and the first of the 21st. I hope this book, and the television series with which it is associated, brings the outlook for the next half-century into historical and geographical perspective."
