A First Year in Canterbury Settlement

On the verge of entering the Anglican clergy, Samuel Butler experienced a sudden change of heart and instead decided to set sail for New Zealand, where he established a sheep farm. Butler chronicles his rocky start as a rancher — and his opinions on a wide variety of current events and controversies — in this engaging series of letters to his family.
