'Gisborne is New Zealand's most easterly city and the first in the world to see the new rising sun each day. The connection of Gisborne to the rest of the country did not prove an easy task. the first attempt to establish a link with the Bay of Plenty and Auckland reached almost 80km into mountainous terrain before being abandoned. Another attempt to connect with Napier through the inland suffered a similar fate. It was not until after many setbacks and much perseverance that in 1942 Gisborne was connected with Napier along the present spectacular coastal route. This book tells the story of these railways as well as that of the Harbour Board lines and the Gentle Annie Tramway'
