Description

This 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.show more
