It contains a large amount of fascinating information giving insight into the period. You will information on the pastoral, agricultural, dairying, mining and sawmilling industries, as well as the various products of each district, the populations of all localities, the nature of the road-beds, whether the river and creek crossings are good or bad, where water can be found, the accommodation and other services in each town.
