Our New Zealand Cousins

Book cover
By: (1845-1908)

A travelogue of a trip through New Zealand in 1885 with panegyric descriptions of the scenery, elucidations of the progress the country had made since the writer had been there twenty years earlier, encomiums on the differences between New South Wales and New Zealand, and the writer's thoughts on where the two colonies needed to progress in the areas of agriculture, mining, forestry and education. Chapter 20 outlines a brief visit to Hobart on the way home, while the Appendix covers some statistics on the forestry industry in New Zealand and concludes with descriptions of the eruption of Tarawera in June 1886 as reported by the Sydney newspapers.
