Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"The first historical anthology of New Zealand letters is made up of more than 150 letters that span three centuries. The voices of both famous and ordinary New Zealanders as well as famous visitors capture the richness of human life, both mundane and noteworthy. Chronologically selected from Cook's voyages to the present day, this book contains much previously unpublished material. Each letter is preceded by a short explanatory piece from the editor"--Publisher's description.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 377-380) and index.
