Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Many literary luminaries were born and bred in Whanganui. Others have visited or made the city their home. What, you might ask, did John A Lee, Sylvia Ashton-Warner and the eminent lexicographer, Robert Burchfield, have to do with Whanganui? The answers to that and much more are contained in this guide. It is designed to be a tool for learning who these literary figures are, what their body of work represented and what Whanganui meant to them. Three maps are included: a City Walk, a Citywide Guide and a River Guide.
