Report of the expedition and death of Henry Whitcombe by Jakob Lauper. Here for the first time is an accurate translation of Lauper's dramatic eye witness account of the traverse of the main divide over the pass that now bears Whitcomb's name and the drowning of the explorer as he attempted to cross the flooded Taramakau River. Illustrations.
