Abstract

Ferdinand von Hochstetter (1829-84) was the geologist aboard the Novara and stayed in New Zealand when the ship turned for home. During his nine month sojourn, Hochstetter travelled widely with German Julius Haast (1822-87) and made geological observations and recordings en route. In this English language edition of his travel chronicle, Hochstetter calls the country ‘one of the most remarkable’ in the world. Hochstetter returned to Trieste in January 1860 and has come to be known by some as the ‘Father of New Zealand Geology’.
