Unclimbed New Zealand
Pascoe, John. Unclimbed New Zealand: Alpine Travel in the Canterbury and Westland Ranges, Southern Alps. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1939. First edition.
"Mr. Pascoe, an experienced mountaineer and a leading authority on this particular range, now tells in a vivid and exciting narrative of the considerable part he has played in the exploration of the South Island of New Zealand. There is an epic quality in the story of his siege of the difficult and inaccessible Mount Evans and his expeditions to the Adams Glacier region. He surveys, too, the history of the range, and his researches throw new and interesting light on Samuel Butler, who was a sheep-farmer in the Canterbury high-country in the "sixties" [1860s]."
