"James Anthony Froude was an English historian, novelist,
biographer and editor and is considered one of the best
known historians of his time, particularly in regards to his
Magnum Opus History of England from the Fall of Wolsey
to the Defeat of the Spanish Armada. Alongside his historical
writings, Froude also wrote a number of travel works, with a
focus on the British colonies, and spent a considerable
amount of time in South Africa, New Zealand, The USA
and the West Indies. This fascinating work regarding his
time spent in New Zealand and Australia is unusual for its
combination of objective travel writing alongside Froude's
own opinions, particularly relating to his view on the British
Empire to which Froude was a vocal supporter. An interesting
travel work by a vocal supporter of the British Empire."
