            A fascinating insight into life in NZ at the turn of the 20th century and the evolving face of Aotearoa over time. The Edwardian era (1901-1910) marked a pivotal time in New Zealand's history. In the main centres, the country had emerged as a modern, urbane and self-assured nati...on. In the hinterland, however, the 'real' NZ - wild, exotic and 'Maori' - was still there, waiting to be discovered by the intrepid traveller. The book traces the routes taken by Edwardian visitors and provides a panorama of NZ in the first age of mass travel in the colony. Written for a general audience: those interested in NZ history and travel, and in the 'then and now' comparisons of Aotearoa New Zealand.
