Author(s): Christina Ferens

NZ Gardening

One hundred years after “The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady” was penned by Edith Holden comes a modern response as charming. New Zealander Christina Ferens shares her insights into the meshed lives of New Zealand fauna as uniquely observed on a daily basis in a still-remote part of the country. Through artistry both photographic and literary she lifts the reader’s own perceptions of the world around in a way that lingers on. _ Back cover. Set in a still-remote part of the country, the diary documents the linked lives of New Zealand fauna as uniquely observed on a daily basis. The rhythm of spring and summer nesting, falling two-thirds through the calendar year, provides a sustained climax to the book. Written one hundred years after "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady" it brings to our own century and hemisphere the same perceptive and artistic treatment of Nature. The 48 species of birds in the region are detailed in a glossary and nearly all are captured on camera in both characteristic and action pose : including rare bittern and fernbird
