AuthorAbout this object
In Richard Taylor: Missionary Tramper we see one of the Church Missionary Society missionaries to the Maoris going about his duties in the middle years of the nineteenth century in the North Island of New Zealand - tramping on muddy tracks through dense forest for days on end, camping in pouring rain, being nearly frozen to death on bleak, high plains in the depth of winter, dodging the tide round the base of the sea-cliffs, fording flooded rivers, shooting rapids in a dug-out canoe or laboriously poling upstream. Reading between the lines of his diary, which is the basis of this book, we can see that the instincts of an explorer and natural scientist were strong in this man. Accompanied by his team of Maori bearers and paddlers, he made long and difficult journeys through the length and breadth of the island. Includes bibliography (p. 266-267) and index.Date Made
