This is an auction for STATION LIFE IN NEW ZEALAND by Lady Barker.

"First published in 1870, STATION LIFE IN NEW ZEALAND became an instant bestseller and is now a New Zealand classic. It is the fascinating account of Lady Barker's three years on a sheep station at the foothills of the Soutern Alps. No prim Victorian lady content with domestic activities, the young and vivacious Lady Barker insisted on being included in every adventure. She crossed mountain ranges, faced a charging boar and rode through flooded rivers. Lively and astute, this is an evocative record of early Canterbury and of a fascinating pioneer. Numerous reprintings over the years have left some unanswered questions:

* Where was "Broomielaw"?

* Are the letters real or fictional?

* Who are the people referred to only by initials (such as the C's or Mr L)?

* Why did Lady Barker retain her title when she remarried an untitled man?
