A Naturalist in New Zealand

Stock Code:


A Naturalist in New Zealand by Mary Gillhams ''During her year as an exchange lecturer at Massey College, Mary Gillham, an English ecologist and botanist, studied the natural history of many parts of New Zealand. From the plant life on Mount Ruapehu to the mutton-bird and penguin colonies on Stewart Island, little escaped her keen eye. During her expeditions she was particularly interested in the bird life of small islands around the coast. Her investigations on Kapiti, Stephens Island, Motiti, White Island and Little Barrier, among others, reveal much of the odd and unusual aspects of the flora and fauna of these places off the beaten track. Her book is no pedantic treatise but a racy account of her investigations and her encounters with New Zealanders in out-of-the-way places. It is also a scientifically accurate study of the problems of cause and effect in nature as observed by a delighted explorer of the New Zealand countryside.' The dust jacket has light to medium general wear but the book remains tight and bright.
