New Zealand's isolation began over 80 million years ago when, powered by mighty geological forces, the land mass drifted 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 this book.
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 who is curious to learn about the past.
