From the inside cover:
Richard Henry, little known and mostly unsung, was the first champion of New Zealand's flightless birds. At the turn of the nineteenth century, he lived and worked, often alone, for fourteen years in remote Dusky Sound. His observations of the natural history of theSoud, his close relationship with its wildlife, and his single-handed efforts to save kakapo and kiwi from extinction - all these were substantial and timely contributions to the burgeoning in this country, eighty years later, of a characteristic spirit of conservation.
