The Taieri Plain, one of the earliest farming districts of New Zealand, has always been one of the most progressive also, in its sheep, wheat, dairying and, more latterly, market garden production. Its settlers, hardy pioneers, many of them Scots, had a real appreciation of the homes they built in a new land. And here, in 60 pages of text and attractive line drawings, the churches, the houses, and the barns are described and the life around them sympathetically re-created.
Very good- condition. Cover shows signs of light wear including a brown mark in the area of the drawing on the front and a fold on the front flap. The pages are clean and undamaged with no annotations or other marks.
