In this light-hearted account of Canterbury’s pioneering days, Lawrence Kennaway shares the unique stories of bushmen and farmers who rolled up their sleeves and built the country. Among his lively characters is the pioneer who cooked his mutton chops on the remains of his burnt-down cabin, and the thirsty wagon driver who can’t do without a rest on the way to Christchurch. Includes a folding map of Canterbury. First published in 1887, this edition has been economically reprinted for the modern reader.
