Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

WOOL traces the story of New Zealand's wool industry from inauspicious beginnings in 1779, when Captain Cook landed a pair of sheep that lived only two days, through colonial farm development, shearing, research & development, the 'wool trade', farmer politics, grower levies, market support schemes and statutory wool organisations, to wool products and their promotion in New Zealand and overseas. Great to read and great to look at.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 345-359) and index.
