“Thousands of Australians have visited New Zealand on business or holiday trips, but Frank Clune is the first to write a full-length book describing Australia’s sister Dominion from one end to the other.  With the zest and experience of a world traveller, Frank Clune visited every province and all the principal cities, boroughs, and tourist resorts, to collect material for this, his forty-fourth book.  He describes vividly with his usual careful observation and lively, easy-to-read style, what he saw, what he did, and what he learnt on his wanderings in the “miniature continent”, which he believes to be unlike any other land on earth.”
