Beyond the City
By Sarah E.W. Penny

The land and its people - Riccarton - Waimairi - Paparua

This book sets out to study and communicate the story of a local community, the area west and south of Christchurch City now included in the local body areas of Riccarton Borough and Waimairi and Paparua Counties.

The Author has lived in this area for over fifty years and has imbibed much of its spirit and story. Secondly she has the training and experience to be able to lift herself out of the area and place it into a broader pattern. The local historian `should have a sufficient working knowledge of national and even international history, for the local community, even at its strongest, is subject to the most various external pressures, and its history cannot be understood without reference to them' Sadie Penney certainly has this `sufficient working knowledge'.
