Christchurch is very prettily situated; for although it stands on a perfectly flat plain, towards the sea there are the Port Hills, and the town itself is picturesque, owing to the quantities of trees and the irregular form of the wooden houses; and as a background we have the most magnificent chain of mountains--the back-bone of the island--running from north to south, the highest peaks nearly always covered with snow, even after such a hot summer as this has been.

Review: Station Life In New Zealand

User Review  - Meghan - Goodreads

Fascinating letters from a British colonial lady to her sister about tending sheep stations in New Zealand between 1865 and 1868. All the more interesting after reading The Luminaries, which is set in 1866 in one of the gold rush port towns she mentions in her journey. Read full review
