New Zealand Through Time: An Illustrated Journey Through 83 Million Years of Natural History
Publisher:New Holland Australia(AU)
New Zealand's isolation began over 80 million years ago when, powered by mighty geological forces, the land mass rifted away from ancient Gondwana and drifted into the Pacific with its precious cargo of wildlife. The natural history of the shaky isles and their surrounding seas, the dramatic geology and unique plants and animals, is the subject of New Zealand through Time. From those dramatic origins right up to recent extinctions of native birds and the 1931 Hawke's Bay earthquake, artist Ronald Cometti portrays the past in 16 chapters, each containing an essay, a full-page feature painting and a number of smaller illustrations, which together create a magnificent gallery that will be of interest to anyone from young teen to adult who is curious to learn about the past.
