Re: SOLO - Pioneer work in the Alps of New Zealand - annise

:oops: (I must have been tired) 20 PL OK. Finished! No need for you to feel red faced. On listening again, it didn't sound right; and I didn't get the microphone out to fix it - just found an appropriate candidate from among the "of"s already read and pasted it in (lazy!). Yay - finished. Thanks fo...

At the beginning of the intro you say "Appendix 2, Pioneer..." I'm confused by the "2"

"to" substituted with "of". Hope that sounds OK now.

Re: [SOLO] - Travels in New Zealand by Ernest Dieffenbach - annise

Hi Anne -

Thanks! So super speedy.

Thanks for shortening the title for the 2nd and subsequent Chapters. I almost did that when editing the html code but thought I would leave that executive decision to you.

Cheers

Re: SOLO - Pioneer work in the Alps of New Zealand - annise

19 PL OK. You've obviously put a lot of thought and effort into the summary. I find the opening quote quite exhilarating. I'm hooked after reading just that. The next two paragraphs though provide a very good overview of the book. Hi -- Thanks for those supportive comments. When I read the bit that...

I've spotted "Travels in New Zealand" by Ernest Dieffenbach "Late naturalist to the New Zealand Company", published in 1843 and containing "unvarnished descriptions of the places I visit...

Re: SOLO - Pioneer work in the Alps of New Zealand - annise

I am really enjoying reading it. Sadly it is almost finished. I understand now why there aren’t walking tracks up some of those valleys. APH was pretty staunch! Cheers
