About this book

This is a paperback edition of this book, which was shortlisted for the Montana NZ Book Awards in 1997. It is a major work of regional natural history introducing a New Zealand World Heritage Area, Fiordland National Park.

In a world largely modified by humans, Fiordland is a breathing space for nature. It is one of the planet's great wilderness areas, where monumental landscapes combine with a mosaic of miniature worlds. Located on the southwest coast of New Zealand, much of its landscape was formed by great valleys carved out by glaciers which are now half-drowned. Milford Sound is one of New Zealand's most remote but necessary tourist destinations, while Dusky Sound provided a home to Captain Cook's Resolution and its scientists, as well as artist William Hodges, for five weeks in 1773. This book is for travellers, nature-lovers and scientists alike.

Other books by the same authors in this prize-winning series are Wild Central, Wild Dunedin, and Wild Rivers.

For those interested in getting behind the picture postcard image that is often the only impression many people have of this unique part of the world, Wild Fiordland is a must read... With over 200 full colour photographs and easy to read text, the book is a great way to discover the intricacies and delights of this breathing space for nature". -- Timaru Herald, May 1997.
