The New Zealand Novel 1860-1965

Native, Tough

Native, Tough. These, then, are the achievements of the last five years. They are, I believe, sufficiently varied in range and high in quality to justify the claim made in 1960 (at the end of chapter seven), that the New Zealand novel "is a native, tough, resilient, and . . . doing well."
