In 1873 Lady Barker published a Station Amusements in New Zealand, which provided would-be settlers with information on buying land, coping with servants, and other problems.
It became a classic of New Zealand literature and was reprinted many times in Britain and, more recently, here in New Zealand. Her discerning eye and deft style provide memorable pictures of rural events, personalities, pursuits and problems. None was more arresting than her account of the great snowstorm of 1867.
