The Exploration of New Zealand


A clear and honest account of New Zealand exploration was given by W. Howitt in The History of the Discovery of Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand (London, 1865). He made good use of official reports but said little about the early missionaries and perhaps too much about the efforts to link Canterbury and the West Coast. For a more modern introduction to the subject there is The Pioneer Explorers of New Zealand (London, 1929) by J. R. Elder.
