PROMISED LAND From Dunedin to the Dunstan Goldfields

£29.99

Product description

This is the first printing of 'Promised Land'. The card covers have one tiny bump on the right front, very slight roughness along the top and bottom edges and, in the right light, a few small scratches are faintly perceptible on the surface. The corners are still crisp and overall the volume is in very good condition indeed for a softback published in 2009. Internally the text is impeccable. Sydney describes how the discovery of gold in Central Otago in 1862 transformed the area inhabited at that time by a few pastoralists. He uses documentation from the period, diaries, contemporary photographs, sketches, prints, to illustrate his narrative. He then adds his own stunning photographs of the landscape and talks of his own determination to help preserve it from the threat of development. A fascinating story presented in a very attractive volume.
