Hochstetter came to New Zealand as the geologist on the Austrian 'Novara' expedition. Joined by Haast he ventured into the central north island and the rugged Nelson back country. The journeys resulted in great narratives of colonial exploration and brought forth many scientific discoveries. This text draws on hitherto unpublished material held in private European archives.
