Illustrated History of Canterbury by Anna Rogers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Canterbury means flat plains, high mountains, thousands of sheep, and a capital city and social hierarchy apparently transplanted directly from 19th-century England. But the country's largest region has a much richer and more complex history, both Maori and Pakeha. In words and a wealth of photographs, this book tells the story of Canterbury from its geological formation through Maori settlement, the arrival of Europeans and the rise of sheep and wheat farming, the revolution wrought by rail, the hard years of depression and war and the new economic successes of dairying, tourism and technology.
