Exploring the Chatham Islands
by Heidi Ramsay
About the Book
This photo book is of images of the Chatham and Pitt Islands that are 860 kms east of Christchurch, New Zealand. The Chatham Islands(only 2 of the 10 are habitable) was settled initially by the peaceful Moriori people and from the 19th C Maori and Europeans.
Crayfish, paua and blue cod are the chief exports. Total population of both Islands is around 900.
An 8 day visit was too short. to absorb all the history and culture of the Chatham Islands and undertake all the walks.
