Diverse, dynamic, beautiful, unique ...
Southern New Zealand is an extraordinary region.

This book celebrates Otago Museum's major new 'Southern Land, Southern People' gallery, opened at the end of August 2002. It offers a comprehensive insight into the character of the region – its astonishing landforms, lost fauna and flora, fossil record and boisterous climate – and the way people have explored this challenging landscape and utilised its natural resources.

The author

NEVILLE PEAT is the author of numerous guides to southern New Zealand natural features and attractions, including The Catlins. He is based in Dunedin.
