    DescriptionThis is a paperback edition of Wild Fiordland, which was shortlisted for the Montana New Zealand 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 Fiordland s landscape was formed by great valleys carved out by glaciers which are now half-drowned. Wild Fiordland is for travellers, nature-lovers, and scientists alike.

    Review quote
    "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.
