TEXT by Hamish Keith OBE


This richly illustrated survey of life in 20th Century NZ begins in the days when "King" Dick Seddon ruled over what he called "God's Own Country". It shows how ordinary NZers lived in town and country, how they made ends meet, how they took care of one another from the cradle to the grave and how they lived at home while their young men fought overseas in 3 wars. It shows how people enjoyed themselves and how they worked to develop the country. The story of life in NZ is told in more than 360 articles in 320 pages, and almost 1,000 photographs, drawings, maps and diagrams, many of them in colour.


Published by Readers Digest, this large ("coffee table") hardback is in good condition. There is a mended tear to the spine cover and a little foxing to some pages, otherwise quite tidy.
