About the Book
South Island, New Zealand, was the last large landmass to be discovered and settled by humans.
Until 1,000 years ago, South Island lay in a pristine primeval state, its flora and fauna having developed undisturbed for perhaps 23 million years.
Although much has been destroyed by mankind in the last 1,000 years, this book with almost 400 photographs and accompanying text, visits some of the natural wonders and primeval places that still exist in this powerful and astonishing Land.
