From the dustjacket:
"This history is to a very large extent bound up with the founding and the fortunes of the first great sheep stations, and these histories have been the subject of years of close research by the author of this book. With her in-depth study of the early-established sheep stations in Hawkes Bay (HB), an area noted for the quality of its lamb, mutton and wool, Miriam Macgregor produced a valuable addition to the history of the region. Her book contains detailed accounts of 117 stations in HB with the earliest dating back to the mid-1800s. In her introduction the author points out that accurate detail about some stations was difficult to obtain as "the pattern of early settlement was not orderly" and furthermore "vitally important records which would have settled, once and for all, many points that are now debatable" were destroyed in the Napier earthquake of 1931. In spite of these and other research obstacles Miriam Macgregor's. Early stations," has become the accepted reference for those seeking to establish the basic facts and detail about these stations, the development which was to have important economic benefits for NZ. While dealing with a particular aspect of NZ's agriculture the book also presents a historical overview of how the pioneer sheep farmers faced and overcame the multiple difficulties encountered in those early days."
