Station Life in New Zealand Ilustrated Edition

Hardback, 1991, 176 pages,  good condition, fading, small wear/tear in jacket, small stain in couple bottom edge

First published in 1870, this is an account of Lady Barker’s three years in New Zealand, establishing a sheep station in the foothills of the Southern Alps. Not one to sit at home, she crossed mountain ranges, faced a charging boar and rode through flooded rivers. It provides a record of early Canterbury and of a fascinating pioneer. Betty Gilderdale provides an introduction about Lady Barker and the places and people in her book, together with a number of photographs and detailed annotations to the text.
