This is the story of the first Europeans to settle on the shores of Lake Te Anau. Here are the very beginnings of the 'city' of Te Anau, its 'inn' and 'half a dozen other buildings.' But it is alsothe story of the early explorers and surveyors who first saw the lake. Here too is the history of the first boats on Lake Te Anau and the opening of Glade House at the head of the lake.
