The Companion Guide to The North Island of New Zealand
Errol Brathwaite

Although this book was originally produced as a guide-book it is now more a historical record.

"It is difficult to tell who will get most out of this book; the visitor from overseas or the resident New Zealander having his homeland opened up for him, by a man with a discerning eye, and a deep historical knowledge.

And New Zealand has so much to offer. Squeezed into a small country that never seems crowded, there is a wealth of variety of natural scenery [...], an almost unending selection of sports and pastimes - and a sufficiency of galleries and museums when one has had too much fresh air, exercise or sun.

There is a history too of Maori and Pakeha; tales of battles and skirmishes; of pioneering days that are the recent past, of gold strikes, and lumbering, animal farming on a prodigious scale, skiing and surfing, and for good measure - lots of geothermal activity - geysers, burping mud pools and volcanoes."

Hardback with dust jacket.
462 pages with black and white and colour photographs and maps throughout.

Published 1970 by Collins Bros & Co, Auckland.

Some wear and tear to dust jacket. Inscription (which has been blocked out) inside front cover. Minimal marking to pages and page ends. Overall the book is in good to very good condition for it's age.
