"With this book Nicki Waters has succeeded in far more than rendering a collection of fine drawings and watercolours of old buildings and homesteads. She has conveyed also through her art a fine feeling for the pattern of rural life in the middle nineteenth century in New Zealand.

Many of the buildings she has recorded were built for practical purposes and built solidly to last. They remain with us today as symbols of the dreams and aspirations of the pioneers who came to this country in the last century and endured hardships, determined to make a new way of life and to build a new world very different from the old.

Nicki Waters has captured this feeling for she is a sensitive and versatile artist with the ability to catch and record the mood and atmosphere of the land as well as the outward appearance of the buildings. In these pages the reader will find something not only to delight the eye but also to stimulate a new appreciation of the New Zealand heritage."
