A full biography of Richard Henry, first champion and founding father of conservation in New Zealand, who worked alone in Dusky Sound in the 1890s, with Kiwi, Kakapo and other rare birds. Fully illustrated with drawings, maps and photographs. This is a facsimile edition of this classic NZ natural history book with a new preface and a new epilogue that brings the story of the Kakapo recovery programme up to date. The colour plates that were laterally reversed in the first edition have been corrected.
