The Garden of Tane

Mona Gordon

The naturalists of Cook's voyages—Banks, Solander, Sparrman, the Forsters; French men of science, Hooker—we shall follow them all in their brief excursions on various parts of the coast when they had only to penetrate a short distance inland to find scores of new treasures waiting to be collected.”
