New Zealand, the Britain of the South: With a Chapter on the Native War, and Our Future Native Policy
Paperback. 538 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.5in. x 1.4in.In October 1854 the Taranaki Herald reported the return to New Zealand of Charles Hursthouse, who for years past has been in England the untiring advocate of New Zealand emigration, and by his writings and lectures has materially contributed to the colonization of the settlement. In this updated 1861 version of his 1857 book, Hursthouse promises a fair and honest picture of New Zealand as she is today and expresses his belief that thousands of struggling British people from all walks of life would be saved by emigrating. He describes New Zealands history, climate, natural history, population, government, exports and markets, agricultural pursuits and trades, and includes a revealing chapter on war and native policy. Hursthouse explains his own reasons for emigrating, and provides practical advice on official regulations, travel insurance, choice of ship, the best times to sail and how to keep occupied during the voyage.
