Paperback / softback
Wonder Country by Margaret McClure
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


And the book is full of enterprising and energetic characters such as Thomas Donne, the first Superintendent of the 'Tourist and Health Resorts Department', the dashing Peter Graham, Chief Guide at the Hermitage, Yorkshireman Eric Colbeck, General Manager of the THC, who encouraged the elegant sandwich and the warming of the cognac glass; cameo parts are played of course by Zane Grey and the lady mountaineer Freda du Faur. Dramas include fires, volcanic explosions and the catching of enormous fish. The Wonder Country is a carefully researched, useful and entertaining book.
