Majestically beautiful, remote and rugged, the High Country of New Zealand is central to the country’s history and identity. Many know the High Country for its snow-cloaked mountains, braided rivers, and tussock grasslands shaped by millions of years of natural events and centuries of exploration and settlement by both Maori and Europeans. This visually stunning new book documents and celebrates that history. Photographer Antonia Steeg began documenting the high country in 2008, when she was invited to attend the last muster at historic Mesopotamia Station. This expanded into a massive 4-year project capturing the land, its people, and their way of life through the changing seasons. With an introduction by award-winning writer Philip Temple, this is the result.
