Product description

The Mackenzie region in the central South Island of New Zealand is a mountainous, glaciated place with braided rivers. Two things make these rivers remarkable: their ever-changing nature, and their nurturing of a diverse and unique community of plants, birds, fish, lizards, and invertebrate life. This book explores these qualities, looking at a unique region, from the Southern Alps to the coast of New Zealand.
